Here is an interesting white wine from Greece that you can grab at the SAQ for under $16.00( SAQ #  13481659)

Lykos Winery was created  in 1991 by Apostolos Lykos and is located Central Greece at theisland of Evia, just 80 km from Athens at the area of Malakonda- Eretria.

Its creation came as a natural consequence of the family’s restaurant, since the members of the family produced and served their own wine to their customers. Visitors can still find the restaurant running next to the winery.

Pop Art hails from vineyards located in Northern and Southern Aria. It is a blend of Athiri 60 % and Malagousia 40%. It was my favorite wine at the tasting of Noble Selection  ( Trialto in the past) and the most original in my opinion.

It had a lovely nose featuring aromas of freshy cut red apples with undertones of bread dough and earthy notes as well. On the palate, it was fresh and round, almost with an oily texture complemented my a medium plus acidity.  I particularly enjoyed its tangerine and cantaulope notes mingled with the roasted herbs and funghi porcini of the wine. A must buy white for your grilled fish preparations outdoors while it is still warm to do BBQ!!
