The 2018 Aspa is mostly an Assyrtiko, with 10% Athiri and 5% Aidani, all aged for three months in 50% new barriques. It comes in at 13.8% alcohol. Ripe and seemingly rich as it opens, this handles its wood well. It shows fine texture and coats the palate nicely in its youth. Despite the wood, it is more expressive than its sibling this issue, the Selection Cuvée (and, less surprisingly, a little fuller in mid-palate feel). It is a rather nice value point on the island just now. If it can age and develop a bit over the next several years, it might even be entitled to an uptick. I tend to think, however, that this will be at its best on the younger side.

Thanks to thousands of years of viticulture, and a dedication to quality and experimentation, Greek wines remain in a league of their own and continue to surprise and delight wine lovers around the world. From the refined and delicious Agiorghitiko wines, with their deep ruby red color and intense fruit flavors, to the unusual and highly aromatic fortified wines made with the black Mavrodaphne grapes, Greek wine is renowned for its variety and consistent excellence. It seems the blazing Mediterranean sunshine allows wineries to make the most of the late harvests and all the intensity of flavor this brings, resulting in wines which are bursting with fruit-forward character and unusual aromas.
