Two Wines from Yoleni's

Two Greek wines from Yoleni's

Yoleni's is a web-based European supplier of Mediterranean foods, oil and wine; they sent me a couple of their wines to review.

Both are very well made and good value.

Avdiros "Domaine Vourvoukeli" Regional Organic Wine of Avdira (Eur 11) A blend of Pamidi / Roditis and Chardonnay; organic. Sandy yellow, delicate aromas of nectarines, apricots and melonskin.
Elegant, pure and precise; clean and concentrated. Ripe, tropical melon fruit, white flowers, leesiness and a hint of spice.Superbly well-made, flawless and beautifully balanced with a lovely tension between ripeness and freshness. Very Good.

A versatile food wine; match with starters, mushrooms or creamy pasta dishes.

"Palivou Estate Nemea" red wine (Eur 12) atypical, ruby red Agiorgitiko from Nemea; fresh red plums, red and black cherries and vanilla spice; fine, harmonious tannins.

Fresh yet supple and rounded, with an accomplished Pinot-esque lightness and red-fruited elegance. Very Good.

Match with Burgundian food - ham terrine, pheasant or duck.
