2017 Idaia Ocean Thrapshathiri Crete

A whiff of herb and gorse-flower from the island of Crete, a fresh sea breeze from a flower-speckled shoreline. Crete is bulging with indigineous grape varieties and this Thrapshathiri does not disappoint. Idaia is a small family-run winery nestled in the heart of the vineyards in the island`s Malevizi district; husband and wife oenologists Vasilis and Calliope specialise entirely in the island`s native varieties. Ideal with a plate of pasta and sardines. (NT 05/10/18)

Depth and vitality on the nose of this pungent, very marine wine. Well named! Hint of laurel leaves. Very refreshing and complete. Great potential. Good Value. 16.5+ points
