Roditis 2009, 12.2 %
The colour is pale silver with golden tinges. Intense aromas of exotic fruits and melon dominate the nose. It is quite densely structured; the melon coats the whole palate. Despite its richness, it comes across as very fresh, a surprisingly long finish eclipses the solid mid-palate.
Roditis Barrel 2008, 13%
This has a much deeper yellow golden colour. The melon aromas still make their way through, but the nose is also dominated by vanilla. The palate is rich, but less fresh than the unoaked version, although the acidity is clearly higher (2008 was a riper vintage than 2009). The mid-palate is bit one-dimensional, the finish more interesting. Nearly all of the production goes to one Greek customer.
Malagousia 2009, 13%
The colour is pale silver with green tinges. The aromas are very forthcoming, a fascinating cocktail of pears, peaches and green pepper. It is extremely fruit driven, quite full on the palate with lively acidity. This is a very fine example of Malagousia, the mid-palate is firm, the finish pure joy.
Milia 2009 Sauvignon Blanc 13.5%
The colour is medium deep straw. The nose is very open and concentrated with exotic fruits and a nice smokiness, also hints of butter. It is rich but very fresh on the palate with good acidity. This is what I love about Greek Sauvignon Blanc that is grown at high altitude – exotic flavours with a crisp freshness.
Agiorgitiko 2009, 13%
The colour is medium deep purple. On the nose there is a very intriguing fruit/vegetable combination in play. Lots of cherries are present, but at the same time beetroot and some earthiness come through. The wine is very smooth on the palate, with soft tannins, the mid-palate shines. The finish is long, and some dark chocolate mingles in the aftertaste.
Black of Kalavryta 2008, 13%
This is a local grape and the wine is best served in a Burgundy glass. The colour is medium purple. The nose has an interesting mix of cherries, green olives, also hints of black truffles and mushroom. The wine is smooth and medium bodied. The olives and truffles dominate the mid-palate, whereas the finish brings back the cherry component.
Milia 2008 Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Black of Kalavryta 13.8%
This has a very deep and rich purple colour. The nose shows dark forest fruits, chocolate, vanilla and some burned earth. It is quite an intriguing combination and the Black of Kalavryta works very well in this blend. The wine has a very elegant texture; the tannins are noticeable, but very soft. The fruit is explosive, the finish multi-dimensional. It is delicious to drink now, but will certainly improve over the next few years.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, 13%
The colour is a deep purple with violet tinges. The nose is full of black berries, wild herbs and tobacco. It is very full and round on the palate with packed soft tannins and matching acidity. It is an elegant wine, the finish is very long, and the aftertaste brings back the pure fruits.
