The colour is rather amber, I would say, brown with a slightly green rim, showing a lot of evolution. The nose is complex, aged. It has been aged in an oxidative style. Deliberate oxidation, I would say. There is a slight hint of wood. There is a lot of nuttiness. Some hints of almost like sugar cane or molasses. A lot of nuts, then we add that dried fruit and honey on top of that. The palate is showing more fruitiness than the taste. I would put this in a medium body category. With a quite high sweetness, but with a good grip. I think the high level of sweetness is well underlined by a good degree of acidity. So really long and lingering. Again I would talk about a quite traditional Mediterranean style of sweet wine. Without begin too poetic, I think this is really what the great renounced sweet wines tasted like in the antique times. I have no clue what it is. I like it a lot. I know we are in Greece, but I don’t know what it is in terms of grapes. Well-balanced complex and enjoyable to drink.
