From the bottle:
"Let Elios White transport you to the sunny Mediterranean -- a light, crisp and refreshing blend with complex citrus and floral aromas. Ideal with Greek and Italian fare, but also pairs with the fresh flavors of Pan-Asian and Nuevo Latino cuisines.
50% Moschofilero -- for a fresh melon bouquet
30% Chardonnay -- for rich apple notes
10% Roditis -- for crisp citrus flavors
10% Savatiano -- for hints of wildflowers
The 2010 Elios Mediterranean White begins with very appealing aromas of peach, citrus (mostly lemon), honey and floral notes. The wine tastes light, crisp and delicious with pear, peach and citrus flavors. This one also has really good acidity. Tart lemon and green apple takeover on the satisfying and refreshing finish. Delicious!
