Pale pink colour. Reserved notes of flowers. Light to medium bodied, flowers break through on the palate. AVIN1669520044049
2007 Illiatoras Chardonnay – VdP Continental Greece, 100% Chardonnay 15
Silver/pale lemon colour. The wine spent 6 months in barrels. Clean and fresh nose of banana aromas. Fairly rich on palate with more exotic fruits. Will keep for a few years. AVIN0044777932386
2008 Panselinos white – VdP Continental Greece, 50% Assyrtico, 50% Sauvignon Blanc 16
Pale lemon colour. More depth on the nose than with the Illiatoras. Very floral. Medium bodied, with a fine palate, good acidity levels and some fatness. AVIN5881811585482
2006 Merlot Lykos red – VdP Continental Greece 100% Merlot 17
Medium dark red cherry colour. Very elegant nose of red fruits. Delicious on the palate with a good structure and full, round tannins. AVIN7586524995785
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon red – VdP Continental Greece, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 16
Medium dark. Very elegant fruit notes, some vanilla and cigarbox. Medium bodied and very elegant in style. A nice winter treat, very well made. AVIN3652457152893
2005 Panselinos red – VdP Continental Greece, 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot 15.5
Medium dark brick red colour with some maturity on the rim. The nose shows a nicely matured Cabernet, with hints of oak. Very charming on the palate, feminin and elegant. Drinks very well now. AVIN2389575847035
2005 Kratistos red – Nemea AOC, 100% Agiorgitiko 16
Pale brick red colour with some maturity on the rim. The wine spent one year in barrel. It has a classic nose of ripe red fruits, elegant and feminin. The same goes for the palate, these are no blockbuster wines, instead the focus is on pure fruit essence and elegance. This wine would surely appeal to many British wine drinkers. AVIN5291765899953
2005 Melikos sweet white – Natural Sweet Wine, 100% Muscat d’Alexandrias 17
Soft caramel colour. Tokay like on the nose with dried raisins. Very well balanced with good acidity levels and bursting raisin essence, this is a treat. AVIN5064571912990

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.
