Wine of the Week 

This lively little white wine from the Peloponnesian Peninsula in southern Greece promises to help you forget all those lingering memories of your first taste of Retsina. Considered a breakthrough in the U.S. market, this enticing wine is made from 100 percent Moschofilero (mo-sko-FEEL-ero) grapes sourced from 15- to 35-year-old vines grown at high elevations in the Mantinia region. Crisp and refreshing, the wine exhibits floral and citrus aromas with flavors of orange blossom, grapefruit, melon and a hint of mineralilty. Serve well chilled. Good as an aperitif or with proscuitto-wrapped melon, grilled fish, shrimp, salsas, ceviche and spicy Asian and Cajun dishes. Where to buy it: Cork & Bottle, Sip Wine, Whole Foods Market, Cost Plus World Markets. Where to drink it: La Louisiane Bar & Bistro, Acropolis Cuisine and Mr. Gyro's. (Listings current at press time.)
