2019 Semi-Sparkling Orange Wine "Paleokerisio" (Glinavos, Domaine)

Domaine Glinavos, Semi-Sparkling Orange Wine "Paleokerisio", Ioannina, Greece 2019

Predominately Debina with a small amount of Vlahiko

SEMI-DRY SEMI-SPARKLER; DRIED APRICOTS & SPICE

Gather 'round, Greek geeks! This is a traditional semi-sparkling, semi-dry orange wine from Zitsa. Temperate climate and high altitude (up to 4,000 feet) helps preserve acidity - essential for any sparkling wine - in the native Debina grape. Suggestive of sweet dried apricots, a whiff of apple, baking spice, and a sherry-like oxidative quality ... and then along come the light bubbles and acidity to cleanse the palate. Clocking in at only 10.5% alcohol, it's light and refreshing, a great start (or end) to any meal.

Serving suggestion: Liver pâté w/ crusty bread & plenty of olives. Ricotta cheesecake w/ caramelized peach puree. Sitting on the porch swing on a cool fall evening, watching the leaves spiral down.

2017 Vlahiko (Glinavos, Domaine)

Domaine Glinavos, Vlahiko, Ioannina, Greece 2017

{organic} Vlahiko and a little Bekhari

BLACK CHERRY, SUAVE VANILLA & CLAY-ISH MINERALITY

The remote mountains of Greece’s Ioannina are wild, wooded, and home to, perhaps, some of the most interesting wines and unique varieties you’ve (likely) never encountered. Vlahiko is one such grape, and its reputation as an well-kept secret, virtually invisible to all but a few adventuresome initiatees outside of its sparsely-populated region of origin, is both intriguing and deserved. So what’s it like? This elegantly earthy rendition is an old-world delight with vibrant acidity and yet an impression of round, silky suppleness adorned by a kiss of creamy vanilla courtesy of two years in French oak.

Serving Suggestion: Pork tenderloin w/ smoked cheese. Flaky leek, spinach, & mushroom pie w/ grated sheep’s milk cheese.
