2008 Domaine Porto Carras Malagouzia (Previously $22)

SKU #1057302

Located on the Sithonian Peninsula of Chalkidiki are the vineyards and winery of Porto Carras. The Estate's four hundred seventy five acres is bordered by Mount Meliton and the Gulf of Torone. The vineyards are planted in 1967, with the first vintage available to the public in 1972. The Estate produces all of its wines from their own vineyards, therefore ensuring complete control over the harvest and Vinification process. To date, the vineyards are planted with fourteen varieties, both Greek and international. This is 100% Malagouzia, and it shows notes of mint and clean white flower blossoms with a rich and round mouth exhibiting apricot and peach flavors. Serve with your finest rendition of simply prepared grilled fish! 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "This exotic white starts with aromas of white flowers, lemon and mint, followed by fuller-bodied flavors of peach, apricot and flowers. Balanced with a viscous mouthfeel. The wine is well-suited for robust dishes--think lobster--but also adds depth to simple grilled fish." (03/11)

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
