Papaioannou Malagouzia 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Profound aromas of lime leaf, camphor, lemon marmalade, sliced tomato, and lemongrass greet the nose. Light and focused on entry, this shows off pronounced lemon grass, citrus, and herbal flavors in the mouth with a slight shading of astringency keeping this very lively in the mouth. The finish is rather short and clipped. While the nose is most impressive, the palate is slightly underwhelming. 85pts

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.
