Roditis - Aoton Winery - Attica - Greece
2020 vintage. Aoton make some of Attica's best wines from just under two hectares of organically farmed vineyards planted in the mid 1990s.
Roditis is a complex and richly textured wine made with its namesake variety and produced in only 3000 bottles for 2015. Concentrated and balanced throughout, it has evolved beautifully in the bottle, as is appropriate for a fine wine. It has a golden colour with a dry, floral palate. Lovely chamomile and tropical notes on the nose with honeydew melon and honey, then pronounced, fleshy peach and pineapple on the palate.
A wonderful wine, bursting with summer fruits and a touch of refreshing lemon. Smooth and silky in the mouth, a little lees ageing lends it the complexity to stand up to spice or poultry dishes or risottos.
