Category: Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Slopes of Aigialeia
Variety: Roditis 100%
Producer: Kanakaris Winery
The vineyards lying in the highest level of the Protected Geographical Indication zone of the Slopes of Aigialeia, climb at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level and, some of them, even higher.
Our Roditis 10³ is a white wine created from selected vineyards at altitudes of 1000m. It is a wine expressing intensively the typical characteristics of the Roditis Alepou (in Greek = fox, which is due to its color) but also the terroir where it has grown. We have selected only the intense reddish clones of the Roditis, which give to this wine its rich aromatic expression and a crystal acidity, making it a high quality modern white wine. For its vinification, both cold extraction and fine lees are employed, giving aromatic complexity, full-bodied and enjoyable taste and a long-lasting finish.
The mountainous Roditis 10³ is a modern and rich white wine with the typical aromas of Roditis and the terroir of the Slopes of Aigialeia. An explosive combination of citrus fruits, exotic fruits, green apple and green herbs of the Greek nature on a background of delicate minerality. Well-structured and rich in the mouth with intense but refreshing acidity. It is an ideal companion of the Greek ‘ladera’ dishes (casserole dishes with vegetables and Greek olive oil), the Greek Feta and all types of salty white cheeses. It is a perfect match as well for roasted lamb or goat’s meat, pasta and of course fish and seafood.
