Malagousia is an aromatic white variety grown primarily in Macedonia and Central Greece. The variety was rescued from near extinction in 1983 by the winemaker Evangelos Gerovassiliou, after he singled out the variety in the local vineyards and planted out his own at Epanomi, on the Halkidiki peninsula, with the variety. Malagousia is best known for its citrus and peach aroma characteristics, often showing various melon and pear flavours on the palate. It is often used as a blending variety, most notably with Assyrtiko, to which it adds exciting aromas and delicacy.
Monemvasia takes its name from the breath-taking Monemvasia town in Locania, Pelopennese. Despite its origin, today Cycladic Islands and mainly Paros produces most of this ancient grape variety. Monemvasia yields in moderate to high alcoholic but low-acid white wines with fruity tastes and aromas.
