Lady of the Lake 2012--White Wine (Greece),
$14.99, 88 points, appeared as a bright almost luminescent polished gold color.
A most unusual aroma reminiscent of the petrol and minerals notes found in a German Riesling with the full spectrum of smells (flowers, Lychee, and melon) found in some Gewurztraminers.
Almost a medium bodied white wine with fair acidity, off dry, with flavors of hibiscus, jasmine, granite minerality, and unripe honeydew melon which cascaded into a complex finish of black pepper, ginger, green olives, and a hint of the 12.5% alcohol.
Varietals are 60% Roditis and 40% Batiki.
Sadly, I did not find Lady of the Lake in New Hampshire, but over the Massachusetts line in Somerville at a lovely wine boutique (Ball Square Finewines) noted for its variety of Greek Wines, though there were plenty of interesting Italian, Zinfandel, and other wines to choose from.
