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 Methymnaeos
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.

Η άποψη του Ντίνου Στεργίδη
Δημοσιογράφου Οίνου, Εκδότη

Η μεγάλη έκπληξη είναι το Μεθυμναίος λευκό, από την ίδια ποικιλία, σε οινοποίηση blanc de noir. Το 2011, στους 13,50°, με μύτη τσακμακόπετρας και πλούσιο, ορυκτώδες στόμα, είναι ένα ενδιαφέρον κρασί με όγκο, σύσταση και πυκνότητα. Δίχως να έχει περάσει από βαρέλι διαθέτει το σώμα μιας καλής Σαντορίνης, με την οποία έχει κοινά χαρακτηριστικά. Κρίμα που παράγεται σε τόσο μικρές ποσότητες, αφού το σύνολο της παραγωγής του Μεθυμναίου (ερυθρά και λευκά μαζί), δεν ξεπερνούν τις 20.000 φιάλες.

Methymnaios White
Review by Riccardo Albieri (Posted on 08/03/2021)

In my opinion a bit less alcohol and body then reviewed on
White fruit, citrus peel and apricot kernel, mineral hints.
Medium bodied.
Good wine and thanks to Methymnaios for saving this grape variety.
