Liastos Moraitis 2006 / 500 ml.

Item#: 30447

SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2010
A rich dessert-style white, with plenty of buttercream, maple and ripe pear flavors. The long finish echoes smoke and spice. Drink now through 2016. 500 cases made.
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Dec 2009
The 2006 MONEMVASIA LIASTOS was sun dried for 15 days and then aged in oak. Relatively light, it is laced with apricot and peach nuances, not particularly syrupy, and not as rich in the palate as the nose promises. It is very tasty, but it does thin fast and the fruit acquires a dried apricot nuance with air and warmth. The intense aromatics were its best feature. Drink now–2015.

Staff Reviews

Drew Kline - Premium Wine & Spirits March 7, 2011

"Has a dark amber color and notes of honeyed apricot, lemon zest and quince. The mouthfeel is lighter than you may expect but does not detract from this rich dessert offering from Moraitis."

Where It's From

Country / Greece

View more wines from Greece

Greece is one of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world, with evidence of wine production dating back to 6,500 years ago. With that said, Greece has been largely overshadowed by many of its Mediterranean counterparts when it comes to Old World wine production. There are, however, some fantastic, critically-acclaimed wines coming from Greece. Many of these hail from the Aegean Islands and Peloponnese appellations.

Dutschke The Muscat

NV / 375 ml.

Item #: 27594

RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Feb 2013
Pale brown in color and made from Muscat Petite Grain grapes, the NV The Muscat has a really grapey and raisin nose underscored by spices and a touch of roses. Very sweet in the mouth it retains crisp acid to lift the concentrated, liquid raisin flavors. Nicely balanced, it finishes long. Drink it now.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2005
Sweet, dense and spicy, with toffee, molasses and prune flavors that linger on the rich finish. Drink now.
