The 2018 Mm is a 75/25 blend of Mandilaria and Mavrotragano aged for 18 months in used French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Lovely and fresh, this has finesse in the mid-palate, velvet for texture and some tannic power on the finish. What you'll most notice is the red fruit flavors from these two very flavorful grapes. It's just bursting with flavor. The structure makes it distinguished. It has the old-school elegance in the middle while remaining persistent. It never slips over to candied or simple, despite the waves of black cherries and raspberries. This looks potentially impressive. I've had my doubts about this bottling, but this seems likely to improve in the cellar. It will be interesting to see how it develops and whether it can get even better. It needs another year of aging, at least, but it is not wholly unapproachable.

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
