(2018) I've recently been tasting lots of Greek wines and a full report will appear on wine-pages soon, but to kick off, a fine example of an island white, which Greece seems to do so well, capturing terrific freshness and a saline tang of mineral acidity. Based on the island of Evia, Avantis Estate has blended the local Malagousia with Italy's Trebbiano, to produce a fine, modestly priced example, only 12% alcohol ensuring plenty of zippy acidity and fruit brightness is retained. Apple, blossom and a touch of nettle moving through to fully-flavoured palate, sweet and ripe fruit notes sit against that bracing acidity to give this mouth-watering appeal. Watch the video
