Gavalas Vinsanto 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

10% 300 grams/liter RS – Lightly spiced and honied on the nose with notes of gingerbread, dried meat, pruny fruit and pine needles. Bright and clear on entry with a terpene rich entry followed by some dusty tannins that parry the modest sweetness on the palate. The flavors tend to the orange end of the spectrum with a long, clear finish that shows off some creamy cherry tones and a Seville orange finale. Really quite lovely and so vivid, though it does seem to be a touch monotonous. 91pts

Gavalas:
Our winery is located in Megalochori, and you will get there by walking through a small lit up stone tunnel. The winery is a small museum that tells the three century tradition of the Gavalas family in the winemaking industry. Tours take place from April 15th until the end of October from 10:00 to 20:00. Call us to arrange a visit.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
