Papagiannakos

Vareli Savatiano 1813

Papagiannakos - Saviatano old vines 2018

It smells a bit like a burgundy chardonnay : there is a bit of butter, a bit of vanilla and some lemon. One can sense a bit of chalk too. But there is also a yellow fruit thing too. The palate is rather vertical with a strong acid drive, some yellow fruits all along (pineapple, apricot) and a tangy finish with fruit. That's really enjoyable!

Domaine Economou

Sitia V.P.Q.R.D. Red Blend 1999

Color is light especially on the rim. Initial nose has some seeweed and vegetal component. And initial taste seems very smooth and easy to drink. Tannin is round and well integrated. There is a core sweet taste. The nose then pick up tea smoke and some hoisin sauce. — 11 days ago

Domaine Sigalas

Santorini Assyrtiko 2019

Really love this stuff. Rock solid with deep complexity, heft, and a long finish. Gets much more approachable with air so, as it stands, the longer the evening tarries on the more this wine rewards you. — 4 days ago

Thalassitis Santorini Assyrtiko 2017

Nose of grapefruit and raw cotton, amber (amber, whatever that means). Palette has candied salted orange peel, gravelly minerality, a bit of rubber and honey and earth. Definitely one of our favorite wines, and this is drinking well. Also, Amber, who is she??? — 9 days ago
