Mountainous vineyards of Aegialia . Harvest at the end of September.
In the winery
Gentle extraction and clarification of the must followed by slow fermentation at low temperatures. In order to maintain the produced CO2 the tank valves are closed before the end of the fermentation. Instant chilling terminates the procedure when the balance between the grape sugars and the alcohol is right. The wine rests on its lees for about three weeks.
Pale yellow green colour. Intense aromas of green apple, pear, exotic fruits and some muscat notes. Very refreshing and vibrant in the mouth. Fine bubbles create a playful sense that is completed by the sweet, clear aftertaste. Food pairings: fruits salad, creamy desserts.
The love of Muscat White for sunlight is common knowledge. It thrives when the sun warms up its small berries, bestowing on their thick skin a freckle-dotted yellow-gold color and uniquely concentrating the variety’s aromas and flavor. As a result, small-berried Muscat White yields dessert wines of international stature (“Muscat of Patras”;“Muscat of Rio Patras”; “Muscat of Rhodes”; “Samos” ; and “Muscat of Cephalonia”).
The love of Muscat White for sloping, mountain vineyards can hardly be concealed although it also thrives at lower altitudes as well. The Aegean islands of Samos and Rhodes, the vineyards of Rio in Patras, Patras itself and Cephalonia are the predominant cultivation areas of Muscat White
