Grampsas Novita White 2015
White | PGI Zakynthos | Ionian Islands | 13% ABV | 750ml
From 100% Goustolidi grapes, an indigenous variety of the Ionian islands and in particular Zante. A fresh wine produced by careful hand selection of grapes and controlled fermentation at low temperature. Medium lemon colour and distinctive aromas of lemon blossom, citrus fruits, bergamot and jasmine. Sharp and oily mouthfeel. Ideally accompanies fish, white meat, pasta and cheese.
Vostilidi or Gustolidi is a UNIQUE ancient Greek variety, which has survived from Homeric times under the name of the divine, to take its present name from time to time, from its vintage in August. Its many exotic tannins for white grapes lead us to the theory that his old ancestor was a red variety or that it is an ancestor of red varieties! Bottled wine has grown generations and generations of producers in Lixouri and the wider Kefalonian land, who drank it at home or in the tavern (and still drink it) oxidized! His mixing – until today – of some with drinking water, restores and answers the question of why the ancients drank their wine well!
