Staff Pick Notes

Nimbus albus is a delicious wine from Northern Greece. It's a blend of Malagousia and Assyrtiko grapes. The world "ninbus" means cloud; this wine is unfiltered and it looks a little cloudy.It stays on fine lees for three months in small barriques. Rich in color, it has intense flavors of stone fruits chamomile and citrus. The finish possess a very pleasant slight salinity. A wine with a lot of layers that, at the same time, it retains freshness and crispness. I paired it with some seafood and I found this combination very intriguing: the salinity and the herbal notes supported very well the strong seafood flavors.

Glossary

Malagousia

Pronounced "mah lah gou ZYA", this Greek varietal is making a return from the brink of extinction. This intensely aromatic grape variety makes elegant, full-bodied white wines possessing aromas of exotic spices and fruits. If you like Viognier or Muscat, Malagousia is the grape for you.

Assyrtiko

Pronounced "a SEER tee ko". This white varietal is native to Santorini and the other Aegean Islands. Used to make crisp dry wines similar in style to dry Riesling, it is often blended with other varietals - both indigenous and international - such as Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is also used to make the popular Greek dessert wine, Vinsanto.
