Wine tasting notes

This enticing blend of two Greek varieties delivers dynamic aromatic fruit characters, fused with a hint of orange blossom and tropical notes of melon, peach, pineapple and apricot. Smooth and creamy on the palate with a refreshing and beautifully balanced acidity through to an aromatic finish

Winery information

Manolesakis Estate

Stavros Manolesakis and his father George Manolesakis started creating their own vineyards in 1989, planting Greek varieties alongside international varieties. Embracing the philosophies of culture, love and a passion for winemaking, it prompted them to establish their own wine company: Manolesakis Estate in 1999. Keen to experiment and break winemaking boundaries, they have equipped the winery with the latest technological machinery, in order to produce the best results.

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2016) - 16 pts

Tasted April 2017 - Perfumed with a mix of floral notes from the Malagousia and more citrus from the Assyrtiko, plus some bay-leaf herbs. Similar complex blend of flavours on the palate, lightly scented, fresh grapefruit but with a chalky persistence. Likely to be GV. (JH)

Vinification notes

The completely healthy and perfectly ripened grapes were carefully selected. Only the free run juice was used for the fermentation, which took place after skin contact at 18°C, maintaining the maximum aromatic character. Following the alcoholic fermentation, maturation on fine lees took place for two months, prior to bottling.
