Estate Argyros Santorini 2004

Among the Greek whites only the Retsinas, with their pine tar quality that can appeal only to someone to the manner born, are widely known in this country. This is a shame, because there are a good many appealing well-made, modern bottlings. This Santorini is surely among them. It has a good nose and a refreshing mix of white fruit flavors, with just a hint of pine, but not to worry, this is no Retsina. At the present clearance price of $6.99 it is a genuine bargain.
