Manousakis Nostos, Roussanne
Crete, Greece 2017 (750 ml)
An exceedingly rare, and low production, Rhône-style white wine from Crete, the Nostos is consistently championed by sommeliers the world over. Matured for seven months in oak, this Rousanne shows notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossoms along with peach marmalade, apricot, bitter orange, orange and kumquat. The beautifully blended barrel delivers notes of toast, roasted brioche, vanilla and tobacco, with an unending aftertaste of honey.
