A rare Greek grape, an unexpected style of wine. Chidiriotiko of Lesvos in its most extreme winemaking style has a distinct temperament for those wanting to expand their horizons.
Distinct orange color resulting from the winemaking process. Aromas such as orange marmalade, tangerine and bergamot. Dry and full-bodied with rich texture and a balanced acidity. Medium intensity with a long, mineral finish. Special character, far from those, copy-paste 'recipes' available worldwide.

|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.
