It gets hot, quick, in Thessaly, so Christos Zafeirakis harvests his Malagousia in three passes as the grapes ripen to preserve freshness. This is all mellow pear and melon set off by notes of lime blossom. Organically farmed.

Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Olympus, Christos Zafeirakis operates one of Thessaly's newest wineries, as well as its first certified-organic one. A 4th generation winemaker in the region, Christos spent a good amount of time abroad, learning how to make wine in Milan, followed by stints in Piedmont, Alto Adige and Tuscany, but his passion has always been for his homeland's unique, ancient varieties. He's credited for bringing one back from nearly the verge of extinction: Limniona, a high-acid grape used in some of our favorite Greek reds.

Staff Review: Why I love Domaine Zafeirakis Malagousia Microcosmos 2020

Imagine Chablisian minerality and texture paired with the aromatics of Saumur. If that sounds interesting, then this is the bottle for you. Dry but not austere in the slightest, with plenty of acidity to keep it fresh despite the scorching Greek summers.
