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 Skouras Moscofilero

"The color is light white-yellow. Opulent aromas of white flowers, light and fresh and honeysuckle are revealed, rounded out with notes of rose petal and passion fruit. Bright, joyful acidity that is positively refreshing leads on to a surprisingly long finish of orange rind and a whisper of white pepper."

2013 Kir Yianni Paranga White

"Shows a yellow color with hay highlights. Fresh, with notes of lemon, citrus zest and spring flowers on the nose, on the palate it shows crispness and a beautiful, round finish."

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."
