It can be served with seafood, shellfish and international food.
Sideritis is a pink-skinned Greek variety, which is grown mainly in northwest Peloponnese and sporadically in Attica and Evia. Its name is derived from the Greek word ‘sidero’ (iron), referring to the toughness of the skins. It is a vigorous and productive vine, producing large berries and large bunches. It is a late ripening variety, sensitive to diseases and relatively resistant to drought.
Sideritis produces crisp white wines with aromas of citrus fruits, white flowers, green and yellow fruits, and spicy notes reminiscent of white pepper. Its body is medium, with moderate alcohol and fresh acidity. It is often blended with other varieties such as Roditis.
