Domaine Douloufakis 2021 Crete (Greece) Dafnios Vidiano

Situated in the heart of wine-growing zone of Crete, Greece, in Dafnes of Heraklion, on hill slopes at an altitude of 350 - 450 meters. The terroir of the Dafnes region is characterized by limestone soil and  has a long viticulture history since the Venetian rule in Crete.  Dafne is the name of the winery's village as well as the Laurel tree the nymph Daphne was transformed into after rejecting  Apollo's advances (hence the laurel leaves on the label). Douloufakis is one of the oldest wineries on the island and certified organic.Their Vidiano explodes with aromas of white flowers, herbs, pears, citrus and wet rocks. The palate is medium bodied, citrusy, herbal with ripe pear and a slightly bitter, mineral, long finish. For lovers of Assyrtiko and Albarino. Serve with  pork roast with leeks or octopus with chickpeas and peppers. Giselle Hamburg

Domaine Tatsis (Goumenissa, Greece) 2017 Macedonia Xinomavro/Negoska 'Young Vines

From Goumenissa in central Macedonia, the ancient capital of Macedon and birthplace of Alexander the Great. One of the first Greek wineries to convert to organic viticulture in the 90s, Domaine Tatsis  can easily be seen as traditionalist in nature but they constantly experiment, doing long macerations of their native white varieties and long élevage for roses. They release their appellation Goumenissas with significant bottle aging for a true representation of the wine as it should be enjoyed. A blend of  80%Xinomavro and 20% Negoska, the nose is redolent of tomato leaf, red cherries, hazelnuts with a touch of black pepper.  Intense acidity and structure from the Xinomavro paired with the higher alcohol yet soft tannins from the Negoska dances on the tongue like a gymnast flipping through the air. For lovers of  Nebbiolo & Tuscan Sangiovese. Pair with local dishes like pork with leeks & mushrooms as well as wild boar with chestnuts and olives.GH

Sanzon Furmint 2018 Tokaji Classic Furmint

Sanzon is an organic winery from a woman winemaker in Tokaj. The soils are volacnic and Erika uses spontaneous fermantation with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks, then ages in large Hungarian barrels (kadar) for 5 months. A small amount of sulfites is added only at bottling. This wine is truly emblematic; supple yet taut, with aromas of minerals and lemons. The palate explodes with green apple, ginger and salinity. A perfect balance of fruit and minerality with a long acidic finish that dry Tokaj is famous for. Giselle Hamburg
