Strofilia Estate was started by 2 friends in 1984. This is the latest project in their portfolio, “Syn+”, the result of the next generation experimenting with their family’s accomplished practices. This Agiorgitiko is from mountainous vineyards in Asprokambos and Psari in Nemea. Deep clay soils, whole cluster and 2 weeks on the skins, this spent 6 months in tank before bottling. Downy plum, blackcurrant, cassis, wild cherry on the soft, generous and friendly palate, one with fine powdery, fuzzy tannins hugging the edges to a warming finish. A fine, potent line of acidity plumbs the whole. Rustic and charming; crack and chill and serve with pork. Good value.
Made from 100% Agiorgitiko, this wine exudes damson plum, cherry liqueur, chocolate, brown sugar, tobacco and baking spice. Tannins are present but unobtrusive, and the flavour carries. Roast pork all the way.
This baby overdelivers for the price and multiple bottle purchase is mandated! Haunting aromas of dried fruit, potpourri, herbs and elevated tannins are all present. If you are a Nebbiolo lover, this wine is right in your wheelhouse! Barbecue fare all the way.
If your tastes align with reds such as Tannat or Sagrantino, then this wine is for you. Opaque black colour; the tannins will melt the cement that holds your filling place. Plum, cherry, spice, earth and dark cocoa carry long on the finish. This wine needs protein, preferably on the medium-rare side of the spectrum.
Strofilia Estate was started by two friends in 1984. This is the latest project in their portfolio, Syn+, the result of the next generation experimenting with their family’s accomplished practices. This is a blend of Moschofilero and Roditis, both at altitude, all in stainless for preserving the bright fruit. Perfumed pear, yellow apple, peach, melon and light lining of lees on this easy, bright and fresh white. A bitter grapefruit pithiness rings on the finish. Easy, smashable, slim white, for chilling and enjoying now (at a great price).
Made from unique Greek varieties Xinomavro, Krasato and Stavroto. Intriguing nose of sour cherry, balanced oak and soft spices. Medium-bodied; full mid-palate with a dense fruity core. Tannins are almost powdery. Good balance and long tight finish. Ready to drink and perfect for a barbecue steak.
