Papras Winery 2019 PGI Tyrnavos (Greece) Oreads Black Muscat

Oreads, named for the nymphs of the mountains, is the rosé wine of the nymph-named trio from Papras Bio Wines, made from Black Muscat of Tyrnavos, which has been planted in Tyrnavos (near Mt. Olympus) for more than one hundred years. Like the Pleiades and Naiads, the organically farmed grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated on their skins for ten days, then bottled without fining or filtering and with only a small addition of sulfur (10mg). This year's Oreads is slightly darker in color than last year's, and shows beautiful pink flower, dried rose, and orange blossom aromatics. The palate is dry, crisp, and salty with lots of floral and citrus character: pansies, lilacs, the juice of blood oranges, salted pink grapefruit, and lemon zest. A great expression of this unique aromatic grape, and an instant reminder of spring time. Ben Fletcher

Sclavos 2017 Kefalonia Sunodos

Sclavos is a long-time organic winery on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian sea, off the West coast of Greece. Sunodos or Synodos is a blend of mostly Mavrodaphne, a dark, full bodied red grape, with a bit of  the white  grape Vostilidi for lift. The grapes are hand harvested, pressed, then cofermented and rested in old oak barrels before bottling without fining or filtering and with only a tiny amount of sulfur added. The wine is dark and full-bodied, with a striking core of chalky, limestone minerality surrounded by herbal notes, sea salt, and black cherry. This is great now, but could certainly age well!

Siflogo 2019 Lefkada Vertzami "Keropatis"

Hoof & Lur is a fascinating Moschofiliero from Troupis Winery in Mantinia, in the Peloponnese. Created in response to the growing interest in natural wines, this is Moschofilero in a very raw form: fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated briefly on its skins, and bottled unfiltered with very little sulfur. The result is a wine with expressive floral aromatics and a crisp and clean palate. A great introduction to a new grape variety for fans of dry muscat or more unique rosé wines. Ben Fletcher

Stilianou 2018 Crete Great Mother Red

Giannis Stilianou and his son tend 3 hectares of indigenous Cretan grapes near Heraklion, the capital of the dry, sun-beaten, Greek island of Crete. The Great Mother Red is a wine made with Mandilaria, an intensely dark and tannic grape native to the Aegean Isles. In order to produce a more lightly colored and delicate wine Giannis macerates the juice on the skins for only one day - yielding an aromatic and intensely flavored wine that is eminently drinkable. With aromatic notes of forest herbs, salt, and red fruit, the palate is bright, clean and fresh with red cherry and salted plum notes. This was great with lamb burgers. Ben Fletcher
