Bottle Description

The 2015 Malagousia is mostly unoaked, but about one-third of the juice was barrel-fermented for two months. This is a low acidity grape that doesn't yet seem to support longer aging, Evangelos Gerovassiliou said. (We do have one older example here that I tasted at the winery.) That said, the simple answer I've developed over the years is this: drink it young and fresh. Wonderfully aromatic, this is elegant, with a hint of herbs on the finish. There isn't a lot of power or intensity, but it is refreshing, tasty and a pleasure to drink. The owner here is one of Greece's most prominent winemakers, Evangelos (call him "Evangelo," with no "s" on the end) Gerovassiliou. He also owns half of Biblia Chora, separately reviewed.
