Description

 

 

ASSYRTIKO.This variety is often described as Greece's best white winegrape. It has the ability tomaintain its acidity as it ripens. It yields a bone-drywine that has citrus aromas mixed with an earthy,mineral aftertaste. The wines have a fruity taste andcomes in many styles depending to the methods usedin its production. RODITISis the base for hundreds of modest andeveryday white wines. This is perhaps the reasonthat the variety has been often characterized as“humble”. In actual fact, however,Roditis is neithera white variety, since its berries’ skin color veers to the reddish,noris it “humble” since, under the rightconditions, it can yield distinct and excellent wines.Moreover, given the fact that its wines are

modestly priced, Roditis submits its candidacy to benominated as the best “value for money” variety ofthe Greek vineyard.Sauvignon Blancis a light to medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing white wine with notableacidity, offers a fairly wide range of flavors.Greek producers has taken this grape to new heights in the cool mountain regions, producing racy wines with tropical fruit and gooseberry flavors.
