Naoussa Xinomavro 2017

Matté
9.1

Plenty or earthy spice, ink, sour cherry, dried herbs, dried blueberry, damp violets, wet peat and prune (though not in a dried out fruit kind of way). There a mineral component too, like cinders or coal but in a very pleasant way.
Palate has a lovely balance and refreshing acidity that keeps everything fresh, stewed but sleep black and blue berry fruits, touch of palms violet and that black and sour cherry and prune fruit coming on the finish.

Light garnet in color, some earth and red fruits on the nose. Fruit forward, strawberry & cherry in the mouth. Finishes with some chalkiness, mild tannins, overall light to medium body- very smooth after some air. — 13 days ago

Avaton 2017

Fruity but structured, vanilla tones of the oak, but still elegant. Yes, again a Greek wine that showed there is quite some value to find over there! — a month ago

@Bob McDonald @Peter van den Besselaar yes, I fully agree. Access to Greek wines has increased significantly here in Belgium. I’m exploring them quite a lot lately and I am really positively surprised

Evangelo Epanomi Syrah 2017

Spot on! What a beauty! I guess the Viogner gives that little extra. Juicy sweet fruit but also enough acidity. Silky but powerfull. Highly recommended — 19 days ago

@Peter van den Besselaar definitively! I think in 1 or 2 years it will be stunning. But already good now. I gave it a 3h decant
