2012 Gerovassiliou Malagousia Epanomi

SKU #1143941 92 points Wine & Spirits

 Gerovassiliouís 2012 is more restrained than the 2011 at the moment, with a satin richness and honeysuckle-scented fruit that runs more green plum than peach. It feels balanced and elegant, ready for a grilled fish.  (8/ 2013)

Wine Spectator

 Well-spiced, with gooseberry, peach and wild plum flavors full of ginger and nutmeg hints, supported by crisp acidity. Finishes with notes of pastry. Drink now through 2017.  (11/ 2013)

K&L Notes

If it weren't for the conservation efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou, along with a handful of concerned Greek vitculturalists, the endangered ancient Greek Malagousia vine would surely have gone extinct and we'd never get to enjoy its lovely mango-scented aromas, silky mouthfeel, and delicate elegance. Gerovassiliou treats his Malagousia to prolonged skin contact to fully extract its aroma potential, after which a partial barrel fermentation is followed by several months of aging on the lees to allow for the development of intensity and richness, and texture on the palate. Exotic aromas of lemon and mango lead to soft and creamy mid-palate that finishes with a light kiss of honey and spice. Food pairing: a perfect match for Mediterranean dishes, seafood, poultry, light-sauced pasta dishes and fresh vegetable salads.

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.
