Boutari Kretikos

Crete, Greece

Is 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.
