Description

This wine is entirely produced from the Greek grape variety of Malagousia, which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou. Following skin contact in cold, vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks at 18 °C, while some is vinified in French oak barrels. The wine is left with its lees for a number of months to gain structure and body. It has a brilliant straw colour with greenish shades and an aroma of matured fruit such as pear, mango and citrus. On the palate the rich flavours of lemon peel enhance the appealing mouthfeel, adding a well-balanced finish.
Best served at 8–10 °C. Food pairing: Seafood, poultry, pasta dishes with light sauces fresh vegetable salads, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.

Courgette Flowers

Great with deep-fried courgette flowers!

Deep fried courgette flowers drizzled with orange blossom honey cry out for this Greek Malagousia - the citrus notes picking out the flavours of the courgettes and the crisp acidity cutting through the grease and would stand up to a ricotta stuffing should you wish.
