Written By Treve Ring Libations / White Wine Jan 6, 2010 Boutari Kretikos SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCrete, Greece $12-14Is your resolution to spend less? Be more adventurous? Expand your vocabulary? Well – do I have the wine for you! While we’re facing the wet BC winter weather, let your thoughts and palate take you to sunny Greece. Even the vibrant blue label harkens the Mediterranean Sea.Boutari is the Robert Mondavi of Greece, with the winery dating back to 1879 and wine domination pretty much continually since. Kretikos’ blend will most likely add some new grapes to add to your tasting repertoire: Vilana, Thrapsathiri and Athiri. This pleasantly simple white has wafts of peach and grapefruit aromas and a fresh palate of dried apricot, citrus and almonds. Bright acidity and refreshing aromatic finish exceed the steal of a price. Would be a lovely match to creamy cheeses.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)GreeceWhite WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
