Editorial Reviews for Gavalas Katsano
2010 Katsano 13% – According to the Mr. Gavalas this is a ‘balcony wine’. Well when compared with Assyrtiko perhaps, but this blend of the indigenous Katsano and Gaidouria grapes (2 of perhaps 30 little known grapes that compete with Assyrtiko, Adaini and Athiri for attention on Santorini) still present some of the mineral and acid driven flavors Santorini’s white’s are famous for. The nose is lightly smoky with hints of sweet fruit over a mineral base but the palate is more assertive, featuring bright pear fruit on entry and sweet orchard fruits over that mineral base on the mid-palate that gradual exhibit more peach character as the finish builds. Clean and fresh. 87pts
Compiled by AegeanCuisine This exquisite wine is the result of George Gavalasʼ love and devotion to wine-making and his continuous efforts to revive the rare, indigenous grape varieties of Santorini. It is a blend of two grape varieties little known outside the island, as they only cover 1% of the total vineyard. The production of Gavalas Katsano is strictly limited.
Gavalas Katsano is a dry white wine possessing green highlights and a nose of sweet aromas of flowers, honey and lemon blossom. On the palate it develops a rich taste with an exceptional balance, pleasant acidity and a long after taste.
