On the nose the wine displays aromas of white fruits and flowers. On the palate, the citrus acidity balances with the alcohol and the round mouthfeel of the wine and finishes with a lingering aftertaste.

Кир Яни

Кир Яни

Знаковата за винения регион на Науса и като цяло за Гърция изба Кир Яни (Kir-Yianni) е основана през 1997г. от Янис Бутарис, една от водещите фигури в гръцката винена индустрия, когато той напуска Boutari Wine Group - семейната компания за висококачествени вина, създадена от дядо му през 1879 г. Днес Стелиос Бутарис, петото поколение винопроизводители във фамилията, води Кир Яни към следващия етап от нейната история, като продължава да изповядва основните принципи на философията на Кир-Яни: желание за иновации, уважение към традициите и истинско познаване на виното - от гроздето до крайния потребител.

Аминдео

Аминдео

Аминдео и едноименното защитено наименоване за произход (PDO) Amynteo се намира на северозападната страна на планината Вермио. Лозята са по-високо от тези в Науса, между 570 и 750 м, а северното изложение означава, че те са изложени на студените северни ветрове, което води до хладно лято и студена зима. Необичайно за Гърция, регионът се намира в близост до редица езера, без които температурите биха били по-екстремни.

Assyrtiko

Assyrtiko (Assyrtico or Asyrtiko) is probably the most emblematic wine grape variety in Greece. It originates and is best grown on the volcanic island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea. The variety is quite versatile and its wines can be found in many styles, from fresh and mineral white wines to rich, nut-dessert, known as Vinsanto. On the island of Santorini there are up to 70-year-old vines, and, of course, this age affects the quality of wine - yields decrease and the concentration of aromas in the fruit gives the potential for production of complex and rich wines. The volcanic soils of the vineyards on the island do not allow the spread of phylloxera and here the vines do not need to be grafted on rootstocks. The harsh climatic conditions of the island - strong winds and hot sun - determine the unconventional form of growing Assyrtico - in "baskets" whose walls are made of plant stems and leaves, thus providing shelter for the fruit and protecting them from strong winds. Limited water resources in the soil force growers to plant the vines farther apart than generally accepted standards. Assirtiko is an oxidation-resistant variety used by Santorini winemakers in the production of Vinsanto sweet wines. By controlling the level of oxidation, darker wines with the characteristics of fig, coffee, kirsch and chocolate can be obtained. In the form of dry white wine, Assirtiko has a yellow-golden color with aromas of pear, apple and citrus, as well as fine minerality in the aftertaste. Naturally high acidity means that Assyrtico wines can be aged for many years.
