Gerovassiliou Malagousia Single Vineyard 2016
Gerovassiliou Malagousia Single Vineyard 2016 is #49 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018.
This wine is entirely produced from the Greek grape variety of Malagousia, which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou.
``“It’s the Château Grillet of northern Greece,” one taster remarked. Like that famous French viognier, this malagousia stakes its own place among the many in Greece with its satin texture and restrained floral notes. Evangelos Gerovassiliou has been working with the variety since the 1970s, when he propagated it from an experimental plot at Porto Carras; it’s now the leading variety at his 138-acre estate south of Thessaloniki. His 2016 is bright and fresh, with a sea-salt edge that suggests serving it al fresco with grilled fish.``Wine & Spirits 94 points
