2014 Gerovassiliou Estate White Epanomi

SKU #1243581 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)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 White Estate with just Ktima Gerovassiliou on the front label, is a 50/50 blend of Assyrtiko and Malagousia, with about one-third of the Malagousia fermented in barrel. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. I suspect most will find this irresistible. A fine bargain, this is a wine that shows more solidity and power (thank the Assyrtiko) than the monovarietal Malagousia also reviewed this issue, if not quite its personality and its aromatics. Showing fine concentration for the level and better persistence, it is a fresh and slightly steely blend with the stuffing to hold up to food. It should hold reasonably well for several years, perhaps better than I think, but it doesn't hurt to drink it now. This likely isn't the best of the winery's whites this issue, but I think it is the best value. Particularly if you prefer wine styles with little or no oak, you'll probably like this better than, say, the pricier international offerings. (MS)  (8/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Features plenty of citrus zest notes to the pippin apple and dried mint flavors. Hints of slate show on the firm finish. (KM)  (11/2015)

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.
