Ios-Aphrodite Kiss: a 2016 Dry Rosé of Agiorgitiko (until recently the most commonly cultivated grape in Greece) that has all of the flavor of a Pinot Noir with the crispness of a Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented with skins on for 16 hours, it contains hints of apple and peach. Unoaked. The rose is fresh and named for Aphrodite, the goddess of love and a tiny Greek Island in the Mediterranean Sea, Ios known as the party island, nothing could be more fitting for the beautiful pink wine.
