Glinavos

Paleokerisio Traditional Semi-sparkling Ioannina Orange 2016

A friend who works in a wine shop brought it to go with Morrocan tanjine cooked food. Had it later- pleasantly sweet and orange peel flavor, then tangy, zingy at the end. A brown orange in color and the texture is slightly syrupy. Something saves it from being like cough syrup though. Wonky and worth a try. — 2 days ago

Reserve Rapsani 2013

4th bottle of our Greece exploration. Rapsani region, Xinomavro, Krasato, Stavroto blend. A really good effort. A little bit rounder than the Nemea. I guess the grape blend is responsible for that? Very good QPR. — a month ago

Grande Reserve Santorini Assyrtiko 2014

Petrol and tropical aromas give way to honeyed pineapple, citrus blossom, vanilla, and guava fruit with a spice moved acid driven finish - excellent creamy texture with toned down acidity from the age this paired perfectly with grilled octopus over fava bean purée — 5 days ago

Kormilitsa Cabernet Sauvignon Limnio 2014

Sixth and last bottle of our Greece exploration. Mount Athos region and Cab Sauv/Limnio blend. Terrific wine, delivering exactly what I was missing in the 100% Limnio. Fruit forward, quite tannic and lots of drinking pleasure. Greece has certainly got a spot in my drinking preference. Next step: the higher end wines from Greece! — 24 days ago

Aα Santorini Assyrtiko Athiri 2017

Assyrtiko is slowly turning into my favorite white varietal and Assyrtiko from Santorini will soon be my new Chablis...
Nose of pear, honey, lemon curd and a huge mineral note of chalk. The palate is intense with a strong acid backbone along which lemon plays a subtle part. A strong grip, some chalky notes here and there too. The finish is wide and long with this curdy, chalky music that plays for a very long while. Need more of that, now!
