GREECE

Greece is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago where wine was produced on a household or communal basis. In ancient times, as trade in wine became extensive, it was transported from end to end of the Mediterranean; Greek wine had especially high prestige in Italy under the Roman Empire. In the medieval period, wines exported from Crete, Monemvasia and other Greek ports fetched high prices in northern Europe.

    WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS "The 2015 Assyrtiko comes in at 14% alcohol. This adds a layer of depth and steel … this well-built white should be a better food match, as it has the stuffing to hold up to food and the rich feel to caress the palate while it is doing so. … This Assyrtiko is the winery's unoaked Santorini bottling from old vines …" Assyrtiko is a grape variety native to Santorini and considered by many to be the finest Greek white grape. Decanter praises this fascinating white's aromas of "sea shells, pungent lemon zest, white flowers, volcanic ash and salt notes." In the mouth they found this very dry white "mouthfilling and complex with lingering intensity." We love this white's richness balanced with crisp minerality on the finish. Try this with savory appetizers, fried calamari and grilled fish.

  • GEROVASSILIOU 15 MALAGOUSIA EPANOMI, GREECE

    Item #: 300022
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    This wine is produced from the aromatic Greek grape variety Malagousia which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou...
    This wine is produced from the aromatic Greek grape variety Malagousia which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou when he was the winemaker for Porto Carras. Cold soaked with skin contact to enhance the extraction of aromas, this aromatic white is partially barrel-fermented and then aged on its lees for a few months, gaining depth in flavor. It has a brilliant straw colour with greenish shades and an aroma of ripe fruit such as pear, mango and citrus. On the palate the rich flavors of tropical fruit and lemon peel enhance the appealing mouthfeel, leading to a well-balanced finish. Best served chilled but not ice cold. Food pairing: a perfect match for Mediterranean dishes, seafood, poultry, light-sauced pasta dishes and fresh vegetable salads. Wine writer David Williams says: "A wine such as Domaine Gerovassiliou’s Malagousia 2013 ... is made from a rediscovered ancient, local grape variety (Malagousia) in Epanomi near the city of Thessaloniki. But it’s made in a particularly clean, pure modern way that makes for a quite thrilling dry white mix of citrusy tang and plumper apricot fleshiness." The Guardian, 5 July 2015. Winemaker Vangelis Gerovassiliou was born into a grape-growing family in Epanomi, near Thessaloniki. After completing his studies in the School of Agriculture at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, he studied at the University of Bordeaux where he specialized in Oenology, Viticulture, Wine Degustation and Technology of Oenological Equipment. During his studies he worked with the eminent Bordeaux University Professor, Emile Peynaud. From 1976 to the beginning of 1999 he worked as an oenologist at Domaine Porto Carras, where some of the most renowned wines of Greece are produced. It was there that he helped rescue from extinction the long forgotten Greek variety of Malagousia. In 1981, he began to renovate his family's vineyards and created Ktima Gerovassiliou. In 1999 he left Porto Carras in order to devote himself to his namesake winery.

    Domaine Katsaros is a family run winery established in 1985. The estate is located on the slopes of the famed Mount Olympus in Krania, Northern Greece. At 750 meters above sea level, this twenty-acre vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Xinomavro.

  • KIR-YIANNI 2012 RAMNISTA (XINOMAVRO) NAOUSSA, MACEDONIA, GREECE

    From the Naoussa wine region of Macedonia, Greece, this oak-aged red is made from 100% Xinomavro, a Greek variety that reminds us of Nebbiolo. The 2012 vintage yielded good fruit and more approachable wines. The Wine Advocate praised this red's "sexy" delicious fruit. Drink now or hold.

    WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2012 Ramnista was aged for 18 months in French oak (different vineyard blocks are aged separately for the first 12 months, then blended for the last six into the same barrels). It comes in at 14% alcohol. Despite being a relatively recent vintage, this is also a rather accessible one as Ramnista goes. In general, the 2012s in the region are richer and lusher, with less pure power--easier to approach. So, too, here, although everything is relative. The old school producers in the region like the 2012 vintage (everywhere, not just with Ramnista), but there is always this slight feeling of disdain along the lines of "too ripe, too modern, not enough power." This vintage won't produce the best vins de garde, to be sure, but the bottlings are surprisingly sexy for the grape and a good introduction to the wine, easier to understand than, say, the 2011. All that aside, this is pretty delicious, the fine fruit coming to the fore very quickly. Since it still is Ramnista and Xinomavro, there is power lurking. "Soft Xinomavro" is always a relative term here. Overall, this has some pizazz to it that makes it a lot of fun and it has improved since I first saw it about a year ago. If it turns out not to be the winery's greatest old bones, it will still age pretty well."

This is a deep, dark and sweet fortified wine, similar to Port, although it is made in a solera system (younger wine is added to older wine) like that of Sherry. The wine is produced from the grape of the same name.

    This is a stunning Greek white, very aromatic yet dry. It’s a piercing fruit beauty from vineyards grown at 550 meters. It has an inviting array of aromas, from freshly cut lemons, lemon barley water and lychees to yellow blossom, stone and a tease of something herbal, which leads to a dry and bracing palate, which has surprising depth and great balance. We absolutely love its bright zingy and floral flavors, its cleansing mineral cut and its maritime tang, which give it thirst-quenching qualities. It serves as a fantastic aperitif, but also works really well with sushi, fresh seafood, Greek mezze and grilled fish. It would also be a great accompaniment to middle-eastern and far-eastern dishes.

    In the range of Martin’s Smaragd rieslings this wine is the most delicate and refreshing. It comes from one of the most warm sites in the Wachau (which is still much cooler than most parts of Austria’s wine regions) and is often the first to be picked within the Smaragd rieslings. The numerous parcels that are scattered over this large hill give the wine a great balance of characters from sweet meyer lemon notes to the first pick of yellow stone fruits in early summer. The wine has a wonderfully refreshing spring-like feel that is decorated with flowers, acacia honey and the first grasses of spring. Indeed, spring and summer nuances are what this wine is all about. The wine’s earth impressions are as big of a part of this wine as the fruit, and Martin prides himself in the savory and subtle nature of his wines. Oh yes, there is much more than a small dose of minerality as well. Out of the glass, the wine leads with the impressions of river stone and freshly scratched metal, you know, like your carbon steel knife after a good scrubbing. It is a beautiful wine that is refreshingly delicate for a Smaragd and is loaded with plenty of brain to keep us wine geeks transfixed.
