#frugalfriday inspired by the crazy rich Asian @hungry.md.
Office closed early today so I meandered over to the local watering hole @eversonroyce. They were pouring a flight of Greek wines so I figured I’d give them a shot.
This one really stood out to me. 2014 Kontozisis Vineyards “Sun”. A blend of Limniona and Xinomavro (50/50). Organic grapes. $25. Grown in Karditsa, the bicycle capital of Greece! 🚲 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The nose is a mix of dark sweet red fruit but has this floral elegance. That same type of juxtaposition comes through on the palate. It shows some of its natural wine juiciness (albeit not a juicy bright red, but a darker sturdier fruit set) but the mouthfeel is more traditional, the tannins are fine and give heft to the wine. There’s an herbal hint on the very back end. With a little more time in the glass, the fruit becomes more serious and concentrated. Really enjoyed the wine, definitely recommend it.
