Four epic bottles highlighting¬†the best Greece has to offer
Greece plays a vital role in the history of the Vine and Wine, and the depth and diversity of its vinous offerings are incredible. Sometimes overlooked, we thought we'd put these four fabulous Greek wines in the spotlight.¬†
Vidiano, Oenops Wines
¬£24.00 > ¬£21.60
This Vidiano comes from parcels in Heraklion, Crete and is aged one third in clay amphora, one third in stainless steel, and one third in large old oak barrels. These different ageing components all bring something to the blend and create a brilliantly complex wine.
The wine has a complex nose of citrus with hints of white flowers and herbs with a mineral accent. It is creamy and layered on the palate, with flavours of stone fruits, lime, and spices. Its lively acidity provides freshness to the wine and a long mineral finish.
Santorini Assyrtiko,¬†Argyros Estate
¬£32.00 > ¬£28.80
Argyros are the reference point for top-quality Santorini wines.
Their Estate Assyrtiko comes from 110 year-old vines planted on Volcanic Soils giving incredible depth and complexity.
The wine is rich¬†and concentrated with¬†incredible saline character, lots of depth on the palate and the most epic finish.
Moschomavro, Diamantis Winery
¬£19.00 > ¬£17.70
The Moschamavro grape has wonderful floral aromatics, with soft red fruit, hints of cherry, cranberry plus some oregano, and pink peppercorn. On the palate, it‚Äôs juicy with lots of freshness keeping it all balanced.¬†
Xinomavro, Magoutes Vineyard
¬£28.00 > ¬£25.20
Dimitri Diamantis has produced an incredible rendition of Xinomavro, one of Cellars all time favourite grape varieties. It‚Äôs rich and plush, with lots of mouth-filling texture, and layer upon layer of flavour. There‚Äôs plum and cherry fruit, with spice, and a long savoury finish.
The vineyards are planted on limestone soils, which gives elegance to the wine. They are also planted at 850 metres altitude, giving freshness and helping to temper the full and rich nature of Xinomavro. Winemaking is uncomplicated and after fermentation the wines are aged in large old oak barrels for a year before bottling
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
