Greek Gift Set

$59.99

Taste the best of hellenic culture with a mediterranean gift set full of flavor and memories of a feast overlooking the Aegean sea.

Complement an award-winning organic Greek wine with Mediterranean olives and feta, vegetarian stuffed grape leaves, and sea salt flatbread in a bamboo tray.

It includes a highly regarded Ktima Gerovassiliou Malagousia Single Vineyard White Wine (375mL):

This wine is entirely produced from the Greek grape variety of Malagousia, which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou.

Following skin contact in cold, vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks at 65 °F, while some is vinified in French oak barrels. The wine is left with its lees to gain structure and body. It has a brilliant straw color with greenish shades and an aroma of matured fruit such as pear, mango and citrus. On the palate the rich flavors of lemon peel enhance the appealing mouthfeel, adding a well-balanced finish. It has been named #49 in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of 2019 and 94 points by Wine & Spirits.

“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.
