Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The 2017 Malagousia is mostly unoaked (about 20% was fermented in neutral oak for two months). It comes in at 13.5% alcohol, three grams of residual sugar and 6.2 grams of total acidity. Gloriously fragrant in its youth, this attractive Malagousia is also delicious. I'm not sure it's the best focused in the brand, but it does everything else very well. As tends to be the case, this is not a wine I would like to cellar much, no matter how long it theoretically holds. It will be at its best when exuberant and youthful. Let's lean up just now.
As one of the few continental-climate, mountainous growing areas of Greece, Macedonia produces notable, high-quality red wines. Xinomavro is its star variety, capable of making a spicy and age-worthy red.
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.
