Dry, Still, White, Chidiriotiko, Keep for 2-3 years, 13,5% alc.

An unknown Greek variety, a particular style of wine you expect from now until your wine is white, red, or pink it's time to try your first orange-colored wine. The Chydiriotiko of Lesbos in the most extreme version of orange wine-making, wine is a distinct temperament for those looking to expand their taste horizons.

Special orange color resulting from the process of wine making wine. Moderate intensity aromatic nose with mineral elements, such as citrus peel aromas of orange, mandarin and bergamot sweet. Dry full-bodied, high alcohol, rich texture and balanced acidity. Medium intensity taste mouth, very long mineral finish. Peculiar, distinct, character, far away from copy-paste 'recipes' available on the global market. Drink it over the next two to three years.

Producer Methymneos
Producer's Description Appellation: Protected Geographical Indication Lesvos 

Varietal Composition: 100% Chidiriotiko grapes

Production Techniques: Fermentation without temperature control, instead of the temperature of 19° C applied to white Methymnaeos. The higher temperature gives to orange Methymnaeos its characteristic color, as well as more body than that of Methymnaeos white.

Characteristics: Orange color. Bouquet combines muscat with orange, both fresh and in the form of marmalade. Tannic, earthy ending with a strong minerality, originating from the volcanic soil of western Lesvos where our vines are grown.

Serving Suggestions:  Serve chilled as stand-alone wine or with salmon, duck and exotic, non-western dishes like sushi. Works well as an aperitif or after-dinner wine.
