The dog days of summer are upon us, a phrase invented by ancient Greeks and Romans for the hottest, stickiest days of summer, when Sirius* shines brightest in the night sky. The dog days are languid, languorous...lazy. Bestirring yourself too much? Umm, no. Sitting in an Adirondack chair sipping a crisp white? Much better.
Enter Palazzone's 'Grek'. 100% Grechetto, a grape variety first cultivated by the Greeks. Old vines, steep slopes, low yields, no chemicals-all the right ingredients for a compelling wine.
Grek is a seriously refreshing, thirst-quenching wine. It starts off floral-acacia, orange blossom. The palate is a fruit salad: peach, pineapple, tons of citrus. It finishes with more citrus, herbs, and a hint of bitter almond.
Just set up that Adirondack chair.
* Sirius, the brightest star in Canis Major, is known as the Dog Star
