Rhodes tends to produce large quantities of good quality table wine, with a dry new world character, mostly due to its Southern Mediterranean climate. During a recent visit to my favourite supermarket - the Alpha Veropolos or "AB" for short, I noticed this new wine. It is a move away from mass production and is well worth a try. If they can keep up the quality and consistency, then I will be stocking it next year at the Taverna!

"Villare"

Oinothiki Emery from Rhodes. 12%

Price (AB Super Market): 7,95 Euros

Golden straw colour with light green tints. Mature nose with a fruity, citrus scent. Thick and bodied. Oily. Deep summer fruits on the palate, giving way to a light smooth acidic finish. A little too short, but it does keep you going back for more.
