Domaine Gerovassiliou - Malagousia 2016Rich Flavours
Available 14th Oct 2017
This wine is entirely produced from the Greek grape variety of Malagousia that was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou.
Further to skin contact to enhance the extraction of aromas, it is partially barrel-fermented and then matures on its lees for a few months, gaining depth in flavour and floral aromas.
It has a brilliant straw colour with greenish shades and an aroma of matured fruit such as pear, mango and citrus.
On the palate the rich flavours of lemon peel enhance the appealing mouthfeel, adding a well-balanced finish. Best served at 8-10 degrees centigrade.
Food pairing: a perfect match for Mediterranean dishes, seafood, poultry, light-sauced pasta dishes and fresh vegetable salads.
