Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)
A wine with grapes sourced from two of the oldest vineyards in Greece. 35% fruit from the ancient Louros vineyard on Santorini and 65% of old vine Vidiano vines from Crete. Vidiano is grown on schist and clay with an unmistakable layer of Cretan "garrigue" (French word for shrubs of wild herbs) which are found throughout the vineyard. How old do you like your vines? This one has so many phenolics it's like chewing flavor (how is that possible?), but there is no skin contact and no maceration, this is all free run juice. Salty, smoked wild herbs, yellow pear, and almond.
