Hatzidakis Mavrotragano 2014
Very rare variety, only 2% of the island’s production, interplanted with the white vines, so you have to go round and hunt it out at harvest time. Mavrotragano means crispy black.
Smells almost overripe, like bitter liqueur cherries. Very dry and grainy on the finish. Quite aggressive tannins. Bags of character. Pretty rustic. Needs food – and went very well with smoked duck salad. 13.9% (JH)
