Iris Rose 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

13% - A blend of 80% Mandilaria, 10% Voudomato, and 10% Mavrotragano. Slightly musky on the nose with dark, slightly sour fruit tones and a touch of cured fat top note. Rather high acid on entry with nice fruit edged in austere tannins. The fruit really grows on the palate, all wild berry and gamy with the acidity lending a sour plum aspect that gains complexity from the astringent tannins showing flashes of pomegranate seed before finishing with lingering wild strawberry tones. Not a ‘serious’ wine but I love this. Really fun and both easy to drink and slightly structured. 87pts

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.

A blend of 90% Assyrtiko and 10% Mandilaria – Smells a bit dominated by sulfur. SO2 shows heavily o the palate as well but given time this reveals a nice crisp, focused character with a touch of crisp tannin that supports lightly jammy, slightly smoky strawberry fruit. This is cleansing and refreshing and the fruit is nicely covering the structural elements. Lovely rose. 87pts
