From the island of Paros this is made with Monemvasia, which is in fact Malvasia.
It's a really attrractive summery white wine. Quite floral and perfumed on the nose with hints of grape, jasmine and white peach. It's fairly light on the palate- just 12% alcohol, but not lacking, tangy with grapey fruit, citrus and some stone fruits. It needs to be cold, really lovely al fresco/aperitif white or with simple salads and simple fish dishes.
