Greek wine evening, wine #5
Reminiscent of a Cerasuolo di Vittoria, chalky, dried, dusty cherries with a healthy pinch of dried herbs and this lovely earthy character.
Surprisingly light in the palate, with lovely acidity, pure light cherries and lively character.
This is so nice - so drinkable, with great interesting edges all around. Brilliant! — 3 years ago

Really liked this bottle bought it for $24 at a restaurant . Solid in my view - structure, acidity and nothing weird it over ripe about this . Organic and from Greece which was a nice surprise — 3 years ago
Lovely nose, honey orange blossom, golden syrup, poached pear in sugar syrup, pear tatin, ripe guava. There’s also some background notes of bay leaf and cardamom.
Palate has a lovely succulence with ripe, juicy citrus fruit and clay pot tannin. — 3 years ago
My first taste of this native Greek white grape. Lemony golden color. Lemon is also the dominant aroma and flavor of this wine. Additional notes of white flowers, nuts and honey. Crunchy minerality and a bit of saline on the long and creamy finish. Possibly some lees aging? Bright acidity and a bit of effervescence. A bit sharp right out of the bottle (possibly a bit oxidated) but the wine softened quickly. Interesting. — 8 months ago
Great desert wine that is thick in the mouthfeel but not too sweet. Bought at The Old World Wine Bistro. — 3 years ago
