DOMAINE PAPAGIANNAKOS Old Vines Savatiano 2020

(Markopoulo, Greece) $18

No longer. A new generation of dynamic Greek winemakers are crafting fantastically delicious wines from Savatiano, an indigenous white Greek variety. Domaine Papagiannakos, founded in 1919,  has been at the forefront with their very expressive Savatiano from 50-year-old vines. Streaks of wild herbal flavor—thyme, rosemary, fennel, and sage—dart around in the wine with dizzying vibrancy. The lemony/salty tang immediately sets up a craving for some good plump Greek olives, hummus, and feta cheese. The north-facing vineyards of Domaine Papagiannakos lie over undulating limestone hills on the outskirts of Athens. (12.5% abv)
