Nerantzi Malagouzia White 2019
White | PGI Serres | Northern Greece | 12.5% ABV | 750ml
Refreshing white wine with a light golden yellow colour. Exotic fruits dominate the nose, along with melon and peach flavours. The wine is rich, full and balanced with a pleasing acidity.
Malagousia is an aromatic white variety grown primarily in Central Greece and Greek Macedonia. The variety was rescued from near extinction in 1983 by the winemaker Evangelos Gerovassiliou, after he planted out his vineyard at Epanomi, on the Halkidiki peninsula, with the variety.
Malagousia is best known for its citrus and peach characteristics, often showing various melon flavours on the palate. It is often used as a blending agent, most notably with Assyrtiko, to which it adds middle body weight.
