An equal Greek indigenous blend of what was the almost extinct Malagousia varietal (aromatic) and Assyrtiko (acidity and body). Ripe honeydew, orange and exotic fruit flavours are complemented with herbal notes and wet stone nuances. Lively finish.
Rich gold colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: Very nice wine showing grapefruit, lime, apricots, mandarin, apples and green tea. Medium body with good acidity and medium+ length.
Interesting Point: Very similar to the Rueda (Pedro Escudero Fuente Elvira) that I have just reviewed, but this one has more grapefruit than pink grapefruit.
Drink now on its own or pair it with lemon pepper catfish.
