This is the best yet for this wine and it’s an absolute no-brainer for the warm summer, especially for the price. It is a delicate offering with banana, citrus, apple, grapefruit, gooseberry, honey and herbs all supported by crisp acidity. Chill thoroughly and drink up.
A Sauvignon Blanc may not be the first Grecian wine that jumps into your head, but this is a real bargain — a non-vintage blend of Sauvignon with the local variety Vilana. Bright, pale straw in colour, it has a minerally, herbaceous, green plum nose with a graphite note; medium-bodied and crisply dry, its flavours are green plum and grapefruit with a light floral note and a lively acidic finish.
Opening with a prickle of spritz, this Agiorgitiko is bright sour cherry, plum and blackcurrant on an eager palate. The palate is silky, though tannins are powdery and dark cocoa dusted to a snappy, shorter finish. Sourced from deep clay soiled mountainous vineyards in Asprokambos and Psari, in Nemea, this was whole cluster fermented with 2 weeks on the skins, prior to 6 months in tank before bottling.
Deep ruby in colour with a cedary nose of vanilla oak, ripe plum, light spicy, floral, graphite note; medium-bodied, dry, red plum flavour with grainy tannins; nicely integrated oak and a firm tannic finish.
Bright, pale straw colour; minerally, herbaceous, a bouquet of green plums with a graphite note; medium-bodied, crisply dry, green plum and grapefruit flavours with a light floral note; lively acidic finish. A bargain at the price.
Medium straw in colour with a minerally, spicy, leesy, apple-pear bouquet; medium-bodied, dry, lemony, crab apple flavour with a minerally, slightly bitter finish.
