Domaine Gerovassiliou

Malagousia, 2018


Epanomi 75cl

This wine is entirely produced from the rare, ancient, indigenous Greek grape variety of Malagousia. Further to skin contact, to enhance the extraction of aromas it is fermented in stainless steel tanks between 18-20 C and then matured on lees for a few months gaining depth of flavour and floral aromas. Aged in new French oak barrels too, although the influence is very subtle.
Lovely floral, aromatic nose with white peach and hints of lime and grape and a hint of nutty oak.
Crisp, fresh and clean with lovely tangy white peach, grapefruit and lime, it's zesty with some spice and a touch of oak giving it a delicately creamy finish. It makes me think of a cross between Assyrtiko and Viognier. A floral style with good weight, yet retaining freshness. Would work well with lightly spiced dishes, richer fish and white meat dishes too, and of course served cool alfresco. Very good, the new 2018 right in the slot!
