Strofilia White Dot Moschofilero-Malagousia

The story of the Strofilia company began in 1980 when two friends and colleagues, engineers Giannis Maltezos and Achilleas Lampsidis, decided to plant vines on the Maltezou family estate, located in Tourkochorafo near Anavyssos. They selected foreign varieties with a view to producing a superior wine. At the same time, they repaired the old wine press and pressed their first vintage using traditional methods. The wine was bottled and named Strofilia.

The blend of Moschofilero and Malagousia has proven very successful through recent years. This is no surprise, as it’s a match that combines the floral aromatic qualities of Moschofilero with the crisp freshness of Malagousia, with highly enjoyable results.

Susana Balbo Brioso

Brioso is Susana Balbo’s signature Bordeaux blend consisting of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Malbec, 22% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, all blended then aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels. The grapes come from Finca Dominio, located almost 1000 meters above sea level in the prime area of ​​Agrelo (in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza).
Susana Balbo is regarded as Argentina’s finest female winemaker, and this Brioso is a great wine which showcase her talents. It’s consistently good quality year on year with recent vintages aiming to be more European in style, less fruit driven and more traditional Bordeaux.

Her first harvest broke the rules by creating a premium style of Torrontés distinguished by its elegant notes of white flowers, pear and ripe peach.
In a few words: dry, fresh and aromatic.

Susana Balbo La Delfina Paraje Altamira Malbec

Named after her mother, Finca La Delfina is Susana’s favorite vineyard in Altamira. In 2013, the quality of a small plot caught her attention, so she decided to set it apart and vinify the grapes separately. Deep and dark, this limited edition Malbec was fermented in concrete eggs in order to preserve the character of the fruit. It displays intense blackberry and liquorice flavours framed by a touch of oak from barrel maturation.

Susana Balbo Signature Malbec

Many Malbec associate with powerful, robust and sweet-fruited red wines, but Susana Balbo chooses instead to emphasize the elegant fruity and minerality of the grape variety. Made with purchased grapes from Altamira, this impressive, limestone-influenced Malbec contains 8% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. It’s a scented, well balanced expression of the grape with bright acidity, crunchy blackberry fruit, well integrated oak and filigree tannins. More evidence of the change of style here.

Te Mata Estate Chardonnay

Sourced exclusively from Te Mata estate’s own vineyards, the Estate Vineyards wines represent the best qualities of their variety, vintage and Hawke’s Bay origin.
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 combines the best of traditional and modern winemaking. Traditional whole-bunch pressing, barrel fermentation, barrel maturation on gross lees, and malolactic fermentation were all used on a portion of the wine to enhance the complexity, richness and integration. Modern de-stemming and tank fermentation was used for the remainder of the grapes to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression. 2017 was a spectacular chardonnay harvest in Hawke’s Bay. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’17 is a pure expression of this exceptional quality.
