2014 Gerovassiliou Malagousia Epanomi (last of vintage) (Previously $24)

SKU #1216675 91 points Wine & Spirits

 Peach blossom scents nod toward the Malagousia in this blend, while Assyrtiko provides the drive, a bracing mineral tension that propels the lime-scented fruit forward. It feels firm but filigreed, delicate enough to treat a fillet of sole with respect.  (8/2015)

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.

- 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.
