2016 Diaporos - £42.50
Xinomavro 87%, Syrah 13%
Diaporos 2016has deep red color with purple hues. The nose shows a complex aromatic character composed of successive layers of vanilla and chocolate notes from oak aging, and strawberry aromas typical of a young Xinomavro enhanced with floral hints, such as violet. The Syrah adds a spicy character while prolongs the aftertaste. The intense acidity adds zing to the rich, concentrated body, while the flavor intensity and the robust structure of the wine are a promise of long aging potential.
Palpo - 100% Chardonnay - £36.50
This single-vineyard wine shows complex citrus and white flower brioche, toasted bread, and vanilla, while the rich aromatic character and the well-structured body make up a powerful wine with serious ageing potential. Round, with dense body and flavour intensity.
