A bright, zesty Greek white wine made from the native grapes Malagousia and Assyrtiko along with Chardonnay. The vines are planted in soils of sand, clay and gravel providing excellent drainage. Aromas of lime, tangerine and lemon zest. Pair with fresh seafood or shellfish.

Malagousia - Assyrtiko - Chardonnay food pairings: turkey burgers, crab cakes, chicken breast, grilled whitefish.

Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From Achaia, western Greece, a blend of native Greek grapes Malagousia and Assyrtiko with Chardonnay. Oak influences in the aromas with herbs, leading to citrus on the palate with medium acidity. The finish is dry. Pair with seafood and poultry. Good value and versatile with food.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

60/20/20 blend of Malagousia/Assyrtiko/Chardonnay. Fresh nectarine and lemon aromas on the nose of this crisp and light white Greek blend. Dry and easy drinking. A fun mix of exotic and familiar and a perfect match for grilled calamari.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh and crisp. Aromas of pear, lime with hints of minerality and green herbs. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate, with medium acidity and vibrant citrus notes. Enjoy with fresh seafood dishes.
Mega Spileo Cuvée Iii 2018 is a blend of local Malagousia and Assyrtiko wine grapes with some Chardonnay sourced from the Peloponnese P.G.I. wine region. Look for white florals, nectarine and fine herb flavours creamy on the palate. Grapes are vinified separately, fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and three months on the fine lees. The Chardonnay wine grapes are fermented in large oak barrels for four months with the final blend in stainless steel tank for three weeks prior to bottling. - Community Wine Reviews
