  1. Foundi Trygias 2016
    Foundi Trygias 2016
    PGI Imathia, 100% Xinomavro

    The 2016 Trygias Foundi Blanc de Noir is all Xinomavro (but made as a white), aged for nine months in 80% new French oak. It comes in at 12.2% alcohol. If you like acidity, if you don't think it means a thing without that zing, this is for you. The Naoussa area is not exactly known for its whites, but this is a pretty fine and zesty performance. Tart on the edges, it has notable power as it attacks the palate, grips it and doesn't let go. The acidity zips through the oak nicely, putting it in its place. Overall, this should be a great summer refresher this summer, but it may be better in a year. At that point, it might even garner an increase in score. A little settle-down time surely wouldn't hurt. I'm acidity tolerant and liked this a lot. MARK SQUIRES

  2. Artemis Karamolegos Assyrtiko 2016
    Artemis Karamolegos Assyrtiko 2016
    Medium-bodied, with flavors of fresh-cut apple, pear and quince that feature subtle herbal shadings. Raw almond and chive details emerge on the finish. Drink now. WINE SPECTATOR

    Characteristic stony minerality (salty and flinty notes) in the nose followed by fruity (peach, pear) and herbal (tea, chamomile) hints. Rich mouthfeel and elegant at the same time. Its creamy texture makes an excellent balance with the dry bone crispiness and the high acidity of the Assyrtiko. Full bodied, concentrated wine with finesse complexity and long salty aftertaste.
