Pale straw in colour with a spicy orange blossom and peach bouquet, it’s medium weight on the palate with flavours of peach, Granny Smith apple, a thread of minerality and a fine spine of acidity. If you like Pinot Grigio, this could be your passport into enjoying Greek wines — even if you can’t pronounce their indigenous grapes. Great patio wine.
This medium weight blend of Assyrtiko and Sauvignon Blanc possesses a bouquet of flowers, melon, minerals and lime, as well as hints of honey and tropical fruit. There is very good length as well as a crisp personality. Pair it with chilled Alaskan king crab and lemon for a delectable experience.
It is my belief that there is no better dessert wine value in the marketplace. This bottling always shows a seductive profile of marmalade, orange blossom, spice and honey. Medium to full bodied, the flavours stretch long over the palate. Oh, and yes, it is a 750ml bottle. Don’t miss out on this stickie.
This singular Greek white is reminiscent of a White Bordeaux. Having spent 6 months in new oak, it offers up a pungent/complex nose of green fruit, tomato vine, vanilla, honey, ammonia, linden, spice and citrus flavours. It possesses a medium body and excellent length.
Paris Sigalas, the Santorini Maestro, has done it again. This full-bodied, acid-driven white wine is wall-to-wall minerals and citrus. Lengthy, with a hint of tannin, there is enough weight to pair it with richer meats. As a side note, I tasted this wine as part of a vertical going back to 2001. All have been standing the test of time quite nicely.
This 50/50 blend of indigenous Assyrtiko and Malagousia expresses itself in the form of flowers, peach, spice, apple and honey. Medium bodied, the finish carries long, with a streak of minerals working their way into the mix. Pair it with grilled swordfish and sautéed rapini or roast pork marinated in lemon, olive oil and oregano.
Pale yellow. A somewhat intriguing but penetrating nose of citrus, floral notes and strong mineral notes. Light body, biting acidity, liquid texture but intense and very dry. Very good length. Best drunk on a warm day for its refreshing nature, it can wait until the summer.
