black-cherry flavors. 
Assyrtiko A source of minerally, bone-dry, citrus-edged white wines. Athiri Wines from this white variety often have a scent of stone fruits, like nectarines. Malagousia This melony, jasmine-scented white was on the brink of extinction before winemaker Evangelos Gerovassiliou began growing it again. Moscofilero A primarily Peloponnesian white, its wines have tangerine and blossom scents. Roditis Elegant and light-bodied, this pink-skinned grape produces crisp whites and rosés. Xinomavro This red has floral and spice aromas, firm tannins, and vibrant fruit.
