Karadimos Palaiokastra White 2018
White | PGI Plagion Knimidos | Atalanti | Central Greece | 13% ABV | 750ml
This is a wine from totally healthy & organically farmed Malagouzia grapes on limestone clay in the Paleocastra vineyard. Maturation on fine lees for 6 months with short intervals of stirring creates complex aromas and distinctive flavours.
Malagousia is an aromatic white variety grown primarily in Central Greece and Macedonia, Greece. 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 melon and pear flavours on the palate with exotic fruit notes. It is often used as a blending agent, most notably with Assyrtiko, to which it adds middle body weight.
