It is always a very good thing to have your eyes open for new exciting things going on in the world of wine. I recently discovered this very local grape from the Greek island of Cephalonia. It is not known anywhere outside the island, though, the grape has some close ‘relatives’ known as the Slovenian Rebula, and the Ribolla grape, which has been cultivated for many years in the Friuli region of Northern Italy. The grape produce lemony crisp wines, which are excellent refreshing. It is not wines to be stored for 10 years, but it is a very pleasant drink when young and chilled.
Here are the best examples which I have ever tried before. They are from the producer Gentilini, who also makes a fantastic red Syrah blend. Try them if you can get your hands on them.
