DOWNLOAD

The Malagouzia variety originated from the region of Nafpaktia. It was planted at the Matsa vineyard during its replanting in the late 80s while it was one of the varieties that acclimatized perfectly with the ecosystem of the estate. The result is an organic wine overflowing with an intense aromatic bouquet to such an extent that made it truly unique.

VINIFICATION

Selection of Malagouzia grapes from Matsa Estate in Attica. Evaluation of analytical and berry sensory data to assess the right time to harvest. Specific harvest plan for each plot. Careful hand picking in the vineyard. Cooling of incoming grapes at 10oC followed by hand sorting in the winery. White wine vinification scheme with 8-10 hours of skin contact. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation at 14-18 °C. Maturation on the fine lees for 6 months, gentle filtering and bottling.

CHARACTERISTICS

Brilliant, crystal-clear, pale yellow colour. Very generous on the nose with dominating aromas of water melon grapefruit, peach and citrus fruit accompanied by floral notes of jasmine and honey. Fine, full bodied and complex with excellent balance and a long aromatic aftertaste
