Upfront floral and stone-fruit aromas announce an understated palate of peach and apricot supported by moderate acidity before a fresh, light finish.
This “Trio” of grapes creates a harmonious, attractively balanced blend showing lively citrus, tropical fruit and stony mineral notes, finishing with agreeably refreshing acidity. Very pleasant as an aperitif or will pair flexibly with seafood and other lighter dishes.
Softly scented ripe berry-fruit with red berry and pomegranate flavours presented in a somewhat dry, food-friendly European style. Attractive and easy to like.
The Black of Kalavryta is an indigenous Greek grape that almost disappeared a decade ago. Thankfully, a handful of producers have started to repopulate in the vineyards of Achaia, located in the western portion of the Peloponnese. Stylistically, this wine reminds me of a solid Gamay with its pale colour and flavours of cherry, plum, black pepper, spice and red flowers. Soft and easy-drinking, it should be served chilled, and paired with charcuterie or tomato-based dishes.
This hearty Zin was aged 16 months in oak barrels. Full bodied and with over 15% alcohol, it is a concentrated mouthful of blackberries, blueberries, spice, earth and black tea. It finishes long with supple tannins. Grab a couple of bottles for winter’s hearty fair.
This “unapologetically” big Zin has never wavered from the robust, full-throttle style this Cali producer is known for. Notes of ripe, jammy raspberry, bold cherry and blueberry doused in pepper and spice that never lets up. It’s a full attack of red fruit, blended spices, firm tannins and the kind of structure that makes this the perfect wine for man-gatherings where big, juicy steaks are served hot off the grill.
This is the 10th anniversary vintage for this iconic wine, now sold across the country and with a growing export market. Fermented entirely with indigenous yeasts, it unfolds beguiling floral, berry-fruit and honeyed Muscat scents. An array of fruit flavours on the palate show honeyed lemon, tangerine, subtle nuances of red berries and orchard fruit, backed by signature bright acidity and minerality. Finish is off-dry with a refreshingly gentle spritz.
