Gentle, soft aromas; creamy flavour, lovely balance, just a touch of acidity..then the fruit comes through...not 'overdone' like many Chardonney's nowadays
grapefruit, gooseberries etc..nice..but that's all..
Christos Kokkalis Mova 2003
This is made by a chemist who has a business in Germany...
His top wine is 'Trilogia'..but this, his 2nd wine; is very impressive...(must find the Trilogia).Made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Agriorgitiko
it has a purple colour, still dark; red & black fruits hit you with the first sniff; however..after that..the wine is soft and round, full flavoured, even elegant,with nice firm tannins.Very enjoyable.
Lorinon Reserva 2001
Old style Rioja; cream and vanilla nose; medium weight..
the slight dryness from the barrel ageing..good value(Euros 11,--)
Light colour; clean dryclassic nose; more sweeter in the mouth but
backed up by dry minerally finish..needs a year or two.
I drank this with a German speciality from our area..Handkäse mit Musik..
a smelly type cheese with onions and vinegar...it tastes better than the description..and the wine went very well with the food.
