Bizios Estate and Vassaltis upping the stakes with rave reviews from Greg Sherwood
We do love a good review, it fills us with joy and warmth. However when TWO of our exclusive growers receive rave reviews we get rather over-excited. It is no secret to our friends and customers that we are passionate about Greek wines and we really are proud about having these growers as exclusive to us - we've even written previous posts about Greek wine becoming the world's most exciting wine producing country and how Greece's young winemakers are leading the revolution in Greece's wine industry. So when Greg Sherwood's A Fine Wine Safari reviewed two of Wimbledon Wine Cellar's growers' wines recently, and the outcome was more than positive, we couldn't contain our delight. Bizios Estate in Nemea with their Aspros Kampos 2016 and Vassaltis Vineyards in Santorini with their Assyrtiko 2016 have been rated 91/100 and 94/100 Wine Safari Score respectively.
Read the Bizios Estate Aspros Kampos Chardonnay Malagousia Blend 2016 review here with highlights as follows:
"...known to the locals as “little Tuscany” in Nemea, Greece."
"With premium Greek wines once again riding high in the global wine trade, this is a super addition for enthusiasts."
"The flavours follow quite precisely to the palate, which shows such intensity, concentration and seductive candied apple fruit depth."
Read the Vassaltis Assyrtiko 2016 review here with highlights as follows:
"...Santorini can produce world class wines, and .... can deliver big results, given the opportunity."
"The nose is so pronounced and precise being an incredible mix of salty sea breeze..."
"...the over riding influence is maritime, salty, mouth watering acidity and rasping, mesmerising mineral austerity."
"A wine Eben Sadie in the Swartland would be proud to have made, which is a real badge of honour! Drink now to 2025+".
