Oenops is a project from young winemaker Nikos Karatzas. Having worked at some of Greeces largest wineries he switched his focus to his own project, and Oenops was born in 2015. Nikos doesnt own vineyards or make wines from one place, rather for Oenops Nikos travels the country to find the best parcels he can from old Greek varieties.
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.
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.
