Dry, Still, White, Malagouzia, Drink it now, 13% alc.
The ‘new kid on the block’ in terms of exciting varietals, Malagousia from Alpha estate is appealing due to its stone fruit, botanical and flowery character, being a great alternative to international aromatic grape varieties.
Μια κρυστάλλινη και τραγανή Ελληνική ποικιλία η Μαλαγουζιά, με λαμπερό πρασινο-κίτρινο χρώμα και έντονο άρωμα με νότες λουλουδιών, εσπεριδοειδών και διακριτικών αρωματικών βοτάνων. Στο στόμα είναι γεμάτη με εξαιρετική ισορροπία –δροσιά και φινέτσα και έχει ζωηρή και μακράς διάρκειας επίγευση.
