Notes from the Winemaker:
Brilliantly, light yellow in color with greenish tints. Strong and lively nose, typical Malagouzia, suggesting rose petal with floral aromas and sweet spices, melon, litchi with a note of honeysuckle. Round and mellow on the palate, fat but balanced, high in alcohol with plenty of finesse. Well structured, reminding the nose aromas with a hint of rosemary. A richly textured wine with superb length and balance. A classy wine with long finish and persistent aromas.

Excellently married with green salads, baked vegetables, pasta, low fat fishes and a wide variety of Greek sea food "Meze". - Best served at 11ο C (51,8 ο F).

Ratings & Reviews
89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked and comes in at 13.2% alcohol. As with most of the better versions of this grape, it is fun just to smell. It could, perhaps, use a little more intensity, but the purity of fruit is impressive, and the concentration is reasonable for the grape. Particularly enjoyable are the dry, controlled bursts of pear and peach mingling together on the finish. I wouldn't say this is their best-ever version, but it is still a hard-to-resist, refreshing white at a nice price. As always, drink it young and fresh for best results. It will be great this summer." - Mark Squires (29th Jun 2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A light- to medium-bodied white, with sleek acidity, this offers pretty lime blossom, apricot and Thai basil notes. Creamy. Drink now through 2020. 5,000 cases made." Ð AN (Web Only - 2018)
