Why do we love it?

It has just been released and is one of the most exciting news of the year.

You understand that there is no way Yiannis Papargyriou would let a wine ascend to the throne if it was not at least equal to his two siblings. He has been experimenting for a long time. As expected, the variety he chose was Assyrtiko. An Assyrtiko, overly ripe, as you imagine, which was harvested as late as possible. It remained in one used French Seuguin Moreau 500lt barrel, with tactical batonage, as Yiannis likes.

With Le Roi des Montagnes Assyrtiko 2018 of Papargyriou Estate, you will discover how concentrated fruit, sharp acidity and take-home finish feels like. Alcohol exceeds the limits (15%), but it is so well integrated you won’t feel it either in the palate or nose.

It is not much. Just for the appetite. Numbered and waxed by hand because as you may know by now, Yiannis is not afraid of hard work.

You know it will disappear soon. We made our personal arrangements already.

 

When to drink it?

For the next 5-6 years, it will evolve beautifully.

Tastes Like

Deep lemon with golden reflections in the glass, which prepare for what follows ...

In the nose, there is an aromatic party: honey, orange peel, raisins, apricot, ripe peach, lemon and bergamot. The barrel is almost imperceptible, giving notes of vanilla and butter caramel, without even touching the exuberant fruit.

Mouth filling, with tannins (yes, tannins), medium (+) body and sharp acidity. The fruit here is dense, juicy, mature. Orange, bitter orange, lemon, grape, apricot, nectarine and kumquat on a background of honey, vanilla and walnut sweet. Strong oily texture and enjoyable long-lasting citrus aftertaste.
