Nostos

I love seeing this–classic blends as an experiment outside of their “home”. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Rousanne. All classic South Rhone grapes from France, except they’re grown on the western end of Crete by Chania. This is a wine doppelganger: superficially similar, except that it has a distinct personality you could miss if you judged it by the label. Jammy, black cherry & blueberry, unfiltered and with a very distinct pleasing note of eucalyptus. I used to read wine descriptions like this and think they were fake. There is something magical happening here.
