From Attica the old vines do elevate savatiano to a fine level, above and beyond the pale and the ecru. Bottled...

Greek white rather light, nervous, almost lively, practically dry otherwise. Very good value for money. May 2017

This has loads of typically Mediterranean (specifically greek) saline /smokey minerality complemented by cantaloupe and a hint of lemon. A bargain

From 50-year-old vines, this has a medium-high intensity nose with lovely lemon peel, grapefruit and citrus aromas, all coming through nicely on the palate and supported by crisp, bright acids. Lemony, mineral and orange peel notes linger on the long finish. Tasted May/2018.
