Mylonas Savatiano Late Release 2013
(A blend of 5 vineyards, Vouno, Avli, Skidimarthi, Panagia and Dardiza with average age of vines exceeding 50 years, rocky and limestone soils, 40% wild fermented, lees aging for 3 months. 11.8% abv, TA 6.1 g/L, pH 3.2). Pale gold colour showing its age. On the nose it highlights roasted hazelnuts and a toasty character which I often find in aged Savatianos from Attica along garrigues and grapefruit notes. Has gained weight and oiliness with a lovely streak of minerally acidity. Impressive freshness, focus and aftertaste.

Mylonas Savatiano 2013(90)
Mediterranean nose with herbs and citrus fruit. Nutty on the palate, ripe with good freshness. This has a lot of vivacity for its age.
