The globally recognized Chardonnay is the 'strong' basis for this wine. To become more interesting the end result added an aromatic 'touch' (Malagouzia) and more intensity (Assyrtiko). The excellent result 'justifies' the producer chose to give the name of this wine. Random? I do not think ...
Images shown above are indicative
Medium lemon color with golden hints at some point of contact with the wine inside the glass. Ripe fruity character, reminiscent of mango and stone fruit, sweet spices like vanilla and white flowers. In the mouth the wine is dry, with volume and some grease. The acidity manages to balance the oiliness of the wine in the mouth, while the intensity of fragrance is high and the finish long and evolving, in flavors of tropical fruit, vanilla and oak.
