  • 2020 ‘Orivatis’ Old Vine Savatiano, AkriotouWhite Wine

    2020 ‘Orivatis’ Old Vine Savatiano, Akriotou

    £1350

    Made from the native Savatiano grape, this offers a complex and aromatic bouquet of ripe peach, quince, creamy vanilla and an intriguing hint of Turkish delight. Dry with perfectly balanced freshness, intense notes of grapefruit, pepper, ginger and wild mint lead to a long and spicy finish.

    The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard called ‘Plataies’, located in Plataea, a small village at the foot of the Kitheronas Mountain, in Central Greece. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 250 to 320 metres elevation and during the autumn and winter months, cool air masses blow down from the mountains, carrying dew which refreshes the vineyard with crucial humidity. Cold winters, hot summers and long, dry autumns combine with long periods of sunshine to enable the grapes to reach excellent maturity and complexity. The Savatiano variety is suited to the hot, dry climate as it has excellent drought-resistant properties. The grapes for this wine come from old vines of 40 to 60 years, which are pruned according to the traditional Gobelet style and produce low yields of concentrated fruit.

  • 2019 Kydonitsa, Monemvasia Winery TsimbidiWhite Wine

    2019 Kydonitsa, Monemvasia Winery Tsimbidi

    £1350

    Kydonitsa is Greek for quince and this wine is true to its name showing ripe quince and elegant aromas of tropical fruits. Creamy and full flavoured on the palate with a mouthwatering freshness and a long aromatic and sweetly spiced finish. Perfect with seafood, especially fresh lobster or grilled fish.

    Kydonitsa ( pronounced Ki-do-NI-tsa) is a rare, old local variety and one of the components of the legendary wine Malvasia. The vineyard is located on the peninsula of Maleus at the foothills of the Parnonas Mountain range at an altitude of 80 metres above sea level. Surrounded by the Myrtoo Sea to the North West and by the Laconian Gulf to the South West, the vineyard is influenced by a Mediterranean climate with high sunshine hours and coastal sea breezes. The soils are clay loam and rich in minerals. All these factors contribute in creating a unique terroir and the climatic conditions present an ideal environment for healthy vines, which are cultivated with minimal intervention.

  • 2020 ‘Monograph’ Assyrtiko, Gaia WinesWhite Wine

    2020 ‘Monograph’ Assyrtiko, Gaia Wines

    £1495

    A youthful and refreshing Assyrtiko, with lifted citrus fruits, exuberant tropical fruits and a touch of honeysuckle. Fresh and zesty with a mineral backbone and lovely, crisp finish.

    The grapes for the Monograph Assyrtiko come from vineyards located in the semi-mountainous Koutsi region of Nemea. Unlike the bone-dry, volcanic soils of its native Santorini, the calcareous soils of mainland Greece impart an entirely different character to the varietal, giving it a wider range of exotic fruit flavours and aromas.

  • 2020 ‘Ocean’ Thrapsathiri, Idaia WineryWhite Wine

    2020 ‘Ocean’ Thrapsathiri, Idaia Winery

    £1595

    A bright, uplifting wine, with delicate fruit aromas followed by a rich and charming palate beautifully balanced by a crisp finish.

    The indigenous variety of Thrapshathiri (pronounced Thrap-sah-THEE-ree) is grown in the Dafnes region, in vineyards located at an altitude of 400 to 500 metres above sea level. At this elevation, the cool Aegean summer breezes refresh the vines during the summer, when temperatures can reach 35°C. The cooler nights can drop to 15°C and this diurnal temperature difference retains natural acidity in the grapes, balancing this rich and intensely aromatic variety.

The elevation of the vineyard ranges from zero to 500 metres. Surrounded by the Myrtoo Sea to the northwest and by the Laconian Gulf to the southwest, the vineyards are influenced by Mediterranean climate with high sunshine hours and sea breezes. The soils are acidic and are low in organic matter. All these factors contribute in creating a unique terroir and the climatic conditions present an ideal environment for healthy vines, which are cultivated with minimal intervention.

  • 2021 Malagousia, Ktima GerovassiliouWhite Wine

    2021 Malagousia, Ktima Gerovassiliou

    £2500

    Expressive aromas of white pear, peach and lemon zest combine with floral hints. Opulent, with harmonious balance the palate offers a spicy, fresh and mouthwatering finish enveloped in a delicious flinty, mineral character.

    At Ktima Gerovassiliou, the single, private vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with Greek and international varieties.

The climate is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three kilometres away, while its west side faces the Thermaic Gulf, Mount Olympus and the beaches of Pieria. The vines are grown in soils that are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, as the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits.

    2021 Chardonnay, Ktima Gerovassiliou

    £2595

    2021 was an excellent vintage, being cited as perhaps one of the best of the past 20 years in Epanomi.  Perfumed aromas of melon, ripe pineapple and lemon combine with toasty butterscotch notes. Opulent, with a richly oaked texture, beautiful balance and spicy minerality on the finish.

    The wine spent 7 months in French oak, which enhanced the creaminess and rich texture of this wine.

  • 2021  ‘Thalassitis’ Assyrtiko, GaiaWhite Wine

  • 2021 Wild Ferment Assyrtiko, GaiaWhite Wine

    2021 Wild Ferment Assyrtiko, Gaia

    £3500

    This is probably the best Assyrtiko made in Greece and therefore anywhere!  A highly complex, aromatic nose and funky nose, with citrus notes combining with floral hints from the acacia wood, vanilla, toasty oak and a touch of smoke. The layers of wild ferment envelop this precise and dry wine which has a mineral and salty complexity to the tangy finish. This is a truly unique wine.

    The Assyrtiko vineyard is located in Santorini and the terroir is recognised worldwide for its tremendous historical roots, as the vineyards in this area date back 3,000 years. The low-yielding, 80-year-old, self rooted vines are grown in soils that are poor in organic matter. The high sand content has ensured they have never been affected by phylloxera. The soils are also volcanic: porous with a high mineral content, which imparts the mineral quality to the wine. The long sunshine hours, lack of rainfall, sea mists and strong summer winds all contribute to the unique microclimate. The surrounding Aegean Sea acts as a “climatic buffer” that softens the climate, so the extreme conditions are reduced. The vines are trained on traditional basket-shaped systems called “kouloura”.

  • 2021 Ovilos, Biblia ChoraWhite Wine

    2021 Ovilos, Biblia Chora

    £3750

    Biblia Chora is one of the newest estates on the Greek scene.  Evangelos Geravassiliou and Vassilis Tsaktsalis are two of the best white winemakers in Greece.  The vineyards are based in Kavala, the second-largest city in the north of Greece, where the excellent soil and microclimate provide long growing seasons. They make cutting edge, world-class wines. 

    This 2021 is a blend of 50% Semillon and 50% Assyrtiko grapes.   The distinctive and characteristic aromas of apricot and honey from the Semillon blend perfectly with the citrus and lemon notes from the Assyrtiko, with nuances of vanilla and nutty hints adding complexity. Elegant, with a creamy texture, this stylish wine is beautifully balanced by refreshing palate which leads to a long finish.

    Located in the coastal region of Pangeon, Biblia Chora’s privately owned estate vineyard is situated at 380 metres altitude and extends over 78 hectares. With the striking Pangeon Mountain as the backdrop and the sea breeze coming from the Aegean Sea in front the estate, the vines thrive in this mild, Mediterranean climate which is characterised by mild winters and cool summers. The wide diurnal temperature range encourages a long, slow maturation of the grapes, concentrating the flavours in the berries. The vineyard is cultivated according to strict ecological agricultural standards in order to respect the environment and local flora and fauna.
