Dry, Still, White, Chidiriotiko, Ages well, 13% alc.
A blanc de noirs (white wine from red grapes) from the rare Chidiriotiko grape. White Methymnaeos is rich with 'hot' alcohol and a strong minerality. An organic wine standing out because of its rarity and distinct character. Those of you looking for yet another Malagouzia please turn page...
Pale gold. Moderate aromas with gradually emerging citrus peel. It has a rich taste and pronounced minerality. Crisp mouthfeel, full body and a clean aftertaste. Ready to drink but ages well, too, for at least two to three years.

|Producer's Description||Appellation: Protected Geographical Indication Lesvos
Varietal Composition: 100% Chidiriotiko grapes
Production Techniques: Fermentation at a temperature of 19° C , in order to enhance varietal aromas, instead of the 16° C applied to most white wines.
Characteristics: Hay-colored. Bouquet combining muscat with tones of flowers and citrus fruit. Although dry, Methymnaeos white has a sherry-like sweetness to its taste. Minerality strongly evocative of sulfur, abundant in the volcanic soil of Lesvos.
Serving Suggestions: Serve chilled with smoked goods, fish and seafood, as well as white confections.
