The Estate Strofilia Story
An attractive pair of Peloponnese wines from Strofilia (=wine press). Strofilia began life as a small wine producer in Attica in the mid-1980s and the company used the same name when it opened Athens’ first wine bar. Today the company makes a range of wines from Northern Greece, Attica and the Peloponnese. Both wines below are produced in Asprokambos, at 800m above sea level in the Nemea region.

This is the source of the red wine: ‘Mountain Fish’ which comes entirely from the Agiorgitiko variety (St George), one of Greece’s two best known red varietals, and the style is a deep-coloured purple, with a supple, fruity, modern appeal. The wine has a relatively short maceration and is not oaked, making it a popular choice for many customers with its friendly tannins and fruity appeal. The white wine, named ‘White Dot’ follows another classic Peloponnese style, and uses the Moschofilero grape of Mantineia. It’s cool-fermented to accentuate the aromatic quality of the Moschofilero (blended here with 20% Malagouzia) and bone dry, with a lively acidity. The two wines are attractively presented, with screw caps, and strike that sometimes elusive balance between being true to their region and terroir, but having a modern, attractive style and presentation.
