2016 White Blend "The Little Prince" (Karavitakis)
Karavitakis, White Blend "The Little Prince", Crete, Greece 201665% Vilana, 35% Vidiano CIDER-LIKE TART APPLE & PEAR, LEES & LEMON ZEST Cretian native varieties Vilana and Vidiano are close relatives and appear here as a duo. The former, in the lead, is among the most important grapes on the island, while the latter, in a supporting role, is slowly being coaxed back into significance following an extended decline. This youthful yet old-school white is simultaneously refreshing and rustic, lightly-cloudy and brimming with a cider-ish sharpness and lemonade-like citric brightness. If you ever find yourself unable to decide between a glass of wine or a shandy cocktail, this might be your horse. Serving suggestion: Neapolitan wood-fired pizza w/ anchovies, capers, & black olives. Fluffy, folded ommelette w/ chives, mushrooms, & cheese.
