La Tour Melas 2018

The princess among the wines of La Tour Melas. The similar named wine has a rather specific wishlist. Starting with cold winters full of snow that slowly turn into a warm and wet autumn. During the summer, the grapes like a lot of sun, alternating with a refreshing rain shower. And oh, each grape variety wants to be picked at a different time. The winemakers have their hands full of it. Fortunately, all this attention pays off completely. La Tour Melas 2018 is exciting on every level. The palate is full of blackcurrant, leather, eucalyptus and violets. A smooth, soft and layered whole with a lot of juicy fruits. Perfection in a glass!

About the winemakers

When Kyros Melas in Zürich had tasted from Chateau La Fleur, he took on a bet: He would produce in Greece a wine that would be at least as good. He began planting near village Achinos in central Greece. In a region without a tradition of winemaking. Kyros Melas found this very strange. Because the soil, the slope and the fantastic climate of the nearby Aegean sea, with evening breeze to cool the vines create a perfect microclimate for a vineyard. The growing inventory of quality wines of Greek as well as French grapes is living proof. La Tour Melas keeps looking for the ultimate quality wine, just as long until every possibility of the soil is being used.
