Critic reviews

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2015 Robola is unoaked and sourced from high altitude (500 meters) vines. It comes in at 13% alcohol and is very dry. Rather terrific this year, this fragrant, lively and sunny Robola is fresh and forward, dancing nicely over the tongue. I stuck this beauty back in the fridge for six hours and it seemed far better, fleshing out, opening up and showing better depth than I normally see from this level. Granting that I'm seeing this a bit early, it seems to have a lot going on. Right now, it is one of the most impressive performances from a young Robola in this brand. Will it round into form and remain as impressive? I'm thinking that it will, but at the least it will be the perfect summer white, elegant but always persistent, too. One of its biggest advantages is its wonderfully expressive fruit. It isn't the biggest, deepest or most powerful of its type (even in this issue), but its gloriously fresh feel and intensely flavorful fruit make it the most enticing. It's worth leaning up on this just now. This is probably best drunk over its first few years, but it can last longer. It should be brilliant later this summer, by the way, so don't hesitate to dive in this year or next. It is a wine that thrives on freshness.

About Greek Wines

Greece is a country with a long and rich wine history, it is said that the origins of winemaking here date back 6,500 years. Between the mainland and the country’s numerous islands, many wine styles exist, made mostly from one of Greece’s 300 indigenous grape varieties.

During the 1960’s, Retsina became the national beverage and was associated with Greece and Greek wine worldwide. Retsina is a white or rose wine that derives part of its flavour from pine resin. A storage method from ancient times, pine resin was used to seal wine vessels, keeping air out and infusing the wine with resin aroma. The traditional grape for Retsina is Savatiano with Assyrtiko and Rhoditis sometimes blended in.

Assyrtiko is one of the most popular Greek white grape varieties. From the island of Santorini with volcanic soils, it does not lose its acidity as it ripens. It is sometimes compared to Riesling but with a saline character.

Notable red varieties from Greece include full bodied and fruity Agiorghitiko, Macedonia’s savory and tannic Xinomavro, and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce fortified wine in the Peloponnese.
