Elegance from the north
A variety lost in the yester years that was brought back to life by experienced wine makers of the north, in Macedonia region (Epanomi).
Wines have a distinct aromas of tropical fruits. The more the grapes mature in the vineyard, the more distinct the aromas are. Rich bodied wines, medium acidity, high alcohol content. Aromas reminiscent of peaches, mangoes, flint, some fresh green peppercorns. Matures nicely in barrels but is equally enjoyed young.
The areas that seem to bring out the best, are: Attica, Macedonia (Epanomi, Chalkidiki, Drama) and Aitolokarnania. Sometimes blended with Assyrtiko.
IT HAS A FUN TIME WITH:
Risotto, pasta, fresh salads, white cheese sauces, pesto, greens, peas, chicken and fish (salmon).
