Iliana Malihin Vidiano Old Vines 'Rhea' 2021
At her winery on Crete's Mount Vouvala, Iliana Mahilin makes some of the most exciting wines in Greece. The steep terraces in this area are the site of many historic vineyards planted with native varieties, including some pre-phylloxera Vidiano. The farming is organic and the winemaking highly skilled. The resulting wines are brimming with energy, finely structured and seriously complex.
The Rhea Old Vine Vidiano comes from 90-140 year old vines and is fermented in stainless steel. It has a smoky minerality married with citrus flavours.
Please note: In summer 2022 wildfires devastated the area, destroying 80% of Iliana's vineyards. We do not yet know when or if some of these wines will return.
