Aristocracy Papaioannou Vineyards Sauvginon Blanc 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells very fruity and kind of candied with melon, lime and spicy floral aromas that recall mint and fresh pea. Fresh in the mouth, this shows off fine acid and medium body though the flavors of quince, mint and biter apple lack a bit of intensity. 80pts

Thanasis Papaioannou is one of the first producers who understood and promoted the idea that wine must maintain its unique characteristics. These characteristics come of the grape variety, the vineyards location as well as the procedures, which are followed by the viticulturist - producer for the sake of a biological balance. The family has private owned vineyards in various locations of Nemea and the chosen grape varieties are cultivated with the aim of achieving ultimate harmony with the ecosystem. Mr. Papaioannou's son, George, a chemist - oenologist, continues the tradition and is as creatively active in his own vineyards as in the modern winery of the Ancient Nemea. The goal of both individuals is the continuous improvement of the wines produced, the maintenance of high standards of hygiene and organic characteristics as well as experimentation on new types of wines. The size of the vineyard (57 hectares), the various vineyards plots in areas of the zone, which are characterized by differences in the ecosystem and the age of the vines, lead to a multi - dynamic result. The quality of the result is enhanced by the correct selection of a satisfactory number of varieties and the profound knowledge of its pioneers about everything that is related to the vineyard and its cultivation.
