THE TOP GREEK GRAPE VARIETIES FOR 2017

2 JANUARY 2018

THESE ARE THE TOP GREEK GRAPE VARIETIS FOR THE YEAR THAT PASSED. THESE EXCELLED IN GREECE AND ABROAD!

Every year the trends in the world are different. Varieties begin to shine and to be loved, so they create the trends of the year. Others take a step back, and they lose the lead, because the world may be bored with them. These are the Greek grape varieties that stand out in 2017:

Malagouzia

Yes, it is a hit for the last years and it seems that its upward course will continue. The aromatic Malagouzia with the characteristic aromas of flowers and stone fruits, the oily mouth and the balanced acidity managed to dethrone Moschofilero from its throne.

Assyrtiko

Assyrtiko of Santorini or from the rest regions, has managed and conquered the world wine community with its great fruit concentration, its sharp acidity and its mineral character. Bonus tip: is one of the white Greek wines with the greatest aging potential.

Robola

Kefalonia's hidden hero is no longer hidden ... With special winemaking techniques and more premium bottlings, it began to win over more and more winelovers. Robola without sulfites, robola with indigenous yeasts, robola in oak barrel, or single vineyard robola are some of the Greek wines that exited audiences and critics and something tells us that this was just the beginning.

Vidiano

Vidiano’s multidimensional character managed to capture the attention of Jancis Robinson. Flowery and fruity or herbaceous, with crisp acidity, depending on the climate and altitude that grows, can create wines of a very different style that leave no one unmotivated.

Mavroudi

We have been saying it for a long time, but now the tendency for single varietal Greek wines from the rare variety of Thrace, confirms our just love and support in this very special variety. Deep coloured wines, with rich red and black fruits, earthy notes and botanical hints, that are made to impress.

Xinomavro

The badass variety of Naoussa steals hearts and impressions with its new style. Softened tannins, more fruit forward and less vegetal notes in the modern winemaking version by younger wine producers make the variety more accessible to the general public but also «readier» for immediate consumption.

Mavrodaphne

More and more dry versions of Mavrodaphne are made, showing that the demand for this fragrant and complex red variety is steadily increasing. Black fruit, cocoa and bay leaf notes in an attractive packaging of balanced acidity and moderate tannins
