Dimitris Georgas is one of Greece’s keenest followers of Biodynamism. He produces very good and honest wines.
2008 Ktima Georga, white – VdP Spata, 40% Assyrtico, 40% Malagousia, 20% Savatiano not rated
Dimitris Georgas only opened this bottle to give me an idea of the characteristics of the wine. He said that it needs at least another 3 months in bottle before it will reveal itself. Medium deep straw colour. Nose very closed right now. The texture is already there, with a good depth. This will become a rich wine.
2006 Georga’s Family, white – VdP Spata, 100% Savatiano 15
Medium deep gold. Retsina like on the nose. Medium bodied with straw, hay and fruit aromas, good length. AVIN8345410060247
2006 Retsina Mesogeion, white – Traditional Appellation, 100% Savatiano 16
Medium deep straw/gold colour. Very rich Retsina nose. Medium bodied, dense but not heavy, this might be one of the top Retsina’s from Greece. AVIN7849517061509
2007 SEiRA#3, red – 30% Merlot, 30% Syrah, 40% Savatiano 18
Very deep purple colour. Nose of stewed prunes. Very full on the palate, exploding with prune flavours. Coupled with a good level of acidity, this is very fine with a long finish. AVIN1994923988721
2007 Georga’s Sweet Wine, white – 100% Savatiano 18
Toffee colour. Elegant nose of dried fruits and nuts. Very sweet on the palate with a good texture. Lots of raisin character with a very long finish. AVIN7087989860071

About Markus Stolz

Over the last years, I have come to really appreciate Greek wines. There are many grape varieties that exist only in Greece and I have the good fortune of being able to try them all. I wish to share my enthusiasm with wine lovers around the world, who often limit themselves to maybe four red and four white grape varieties for most of their life.
