SANTORINI - MEGALOCHORI - HELIOPOULOS WINERY

Wine & Spirits Magazine, August 2001   Rating: 91  Exceptional
"Here's an Assyrtiko as succulent and refreshing as a crisp pear rinsed on a cold mountain stream. In fact, for a wine grown in the hot sand of a volcanic isle, it's uncannily reminiscent of a Friulian white, with its nutty edge and firm minerality.  What better way to cool off on a hot summer's day, especially with a platter of grilled octopodi or prawns dipped in drawn butter."

MALAMATINA - THESSALONIKI                        SMALL BOTTLE
Traditional appellation resinated dry white wine.

NOSTOS - HANIA- CRETE - MANOUSAKIS WINERY

The wine Advocate #130-87 pts.
"A surprising effort from Greece (a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, in addition to 15% of the white wine grape, Roussanne), this is a soft, earthly peppery, richly fruity wine with a Zinfandel-like character to its berry fruit. Medium bodied and ripe.  It is ideal for drinking over the next several years..."
