Douloufakis Winery, Dafnios White, Vidiano

Hints of white peach and nectarine on the nose, tastes like quality French Viognier, with its rich stone fruit mid-palate and plenty of crisp acidity to keep it fresh. There is plenty of power in the wine, but the fruit is impressively long lasting. Delicious.
