Select Quantities

750ml Bottle
Case of 12

Item #48083
Size: 750ml
Type: White Wine
Country: Greece

"The 2011 Malagouzia “Axia” was raw and unevolved when I first saw it very early on. I wish everyone could taste it under these circumstances – so exuberant and pure, with hints of peach and grass. It was almost like a tank sample when tasted. It is delicious, friendly and fresh, if not terribly concentrated and not likely to develop much if at all with age. As I like to say with certain types of wines, however long they theoretically hold, you’ll do yourself a favor drinking them young and fresh as they may have nowhere to go but down and the youthful exuberance is one of their best features. I believe that is the case here, although the wine should hold a couple of years. It should win the winery a lot of friends this summer, though."

2013 Sigalas Santorini

"Pale Yellow, with green hues. Aromatic, with citrus fruit and minerality. Minerality is evident, as a result of Santorini’s unique terroir. Quite “austere” as wine, with the acidity being the back-bone of the wine, allowing it to age. Petrol notes and honey-suckle appear in aged Assyrtikos, similar to the German and Alsatian Rieslings."
