Spiropoulos Meliasto Rose'08, Tripoli, Greece

Dry Rose wine from Peloponessos in Greece. Both very fruity and floral although it is a dry wine. A very good surprise! I will sip it again during this summer without a doubt!

Technical Data: 100% Moschofilero grape, indigenous to Greece. Stainless Steel tanks to preserve the freshness of the wine.

Description: Bright and light pink color. Distinctive aromas of rose petals, raspberries and strawberries. Soft entrance for this medium bodied dry rose wine. Raspberry flavors backed up by rose petal. Good lengthy finish. Quite refreshing.

Food Pairing & Service: Very versatile wine, can be of course drunk by itself. Food suggestions would be as follow, white meats (turkey is delicious with it), mild cheeses, pastas with tomato based sauce, fresh cut apples and pears. Serve slightly chilled.

Score: 9/10.

Ageing Potential: Up to 2-3 years.

Price as seen on DC shelf: $14.99
