Notes from the Winemaker:
Intense but refined muscat aromas of jasmine, white peach and apricot, typical of a high-quality Malagousia, are pleasantly balanced by the freshness of a mountainous Roditis adding a crispy acidity and zest to the final blend. The lingering fruity aftertaste underpins the intense flavor and highlights a wine with an enchanting character.

Winemaking:
After a period of cold soak, which increases the extraction of more intense aromas from the skin of the grapes, the must is clarified through static debourbage, before it is inoculated with selected yeasts demonstrating the aromatic character of the grapes. Batonnage is applied in inox tanks for a period of 3-5 months, with the aim to add volume and complexity to the wine.

Varieties: 80% Roditis, 20% Malagousia

Ratings & Reviews
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Paranga white is mostly Roditis, with 20% Malagouzia added in. It is unoaked and comes in at just 11.5% alcohol. Sourced from vines at 700 meters in Amyndeon and using this grape blend, this is always going to be a lighter-styled, fresh white. If that's your style, this does nicely as a classic summer refresher. Relying more on aromatics, acidity and a tasty finish than fat and rich fruit, this drinks easily but always seems very appealing. It is enlivening and hard to resist, with a dry and clean finish. Drink it young for best results, but it can hold well for a couple of years." - Mark Squires (31st Aug 2017)
