Winemaker Notes

Brilliant gold with yellow highlights. Bouquet displays characteristic aromas of tropical fruits, pear and notes of citrus fruit. A velvety, lasting aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Vidiano comes in around 14%. This is a powerful Vidiano, solid and brooding. Despite the power and intensity, there seems to be a little something lost here, at least in its rambunctious youth—personality, finesse--granting that it is not necessarily supposed to be an easy, summer sipper in its intended style. It has enough solidity to work well or better as a food matchup, so take note.
W&S 88
Wine & Spirits
Bucking the trend toward oaked vidiano, this is crisp and snappy, with a green-pear crunch to its fruit and a hint of juniper spice. It’s savory and saline, a mouthwatering pour for lavraki simply dressed with lemon and olive oil.

Alexakis Stelios Alexakis, founder of Alexakis Winery Image

The Alexakis family is one of the most important ambassadors of Cretan wine. It is the largest privately owned winery in Crete and during its long path has collaborated with all the winegrowers on the island. The result is high quality wines that truly represent the Cretan terroir. The winery is a family affair. Stelios Alexakis, chemical engineer turned winemaker is still in charge of the winery with his wife Sofia responsible for quality control.

Children Apostolos and Lazaros, who literally grew up in the winery, join their father as winemakers and are now responsible for the planning and production, successfully transferring the valuable knowledge and insight of their parents.

A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exists, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. After centuries of adversity after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry took off in the late 20th century with an influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology.

The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is mostly moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, sometimes necessitating irrigation.

Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival and refinement of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include full-bodied and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

There are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles.
