Dried herb, white flowers, and perhaps a hint of vanilla all emerge slowly from the glass along with a touch of waxy, quince/passionfruit. Smooth and silky in the mouth, this has attractive if slightly simple flavors of unripe peach, kiwi and again a touch of quince all topped with gently woodsy floral notes. There's a nice combination of weight and power here, all driven by juicy acidity through the modest finish. A fun wine that would be great with grilled fish this summer. 87pts

Four and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

Brilliantly, light yellow in color with greenish tints. Strong and lively nose, typical Malagouzia, suggesting rose petal with floral aromas and sweet spices, melon, litchi with a note of honeysuckle. Round and mellow on the palate, fat but balanced, high in alcohol with plenty of finesse. Well structured, reminding the nose aromas with a hint of rosemary. A richly textured wine with superb length and balance. A classy wine with long finish and persistent aromas.

Vinification Method: Destemming, no crushing, cold soak - skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increase temperatures, maintenance of wine “sur lies” for two months with regular stirring.
