Diamenapetra White Blend

Description

Pale yellow, bright illuminates the glass. The aroma is elegant with flavours of pineapple, apricot and chamomile which are combined elaborately with vanilla, nuts and oak. In the mouth, the wine is full bodied with crisp acidity that integrates nicely allowing the fruit to be properly expressed. The finish is long, leaving you a wonderful aftertaste of apricot and vanilla hints.

Region

Crete

On the island of Crete you’ll find one of the warmest wine climates throughout Greece. The grape variety Vidiano, is popular on the island. This is an easy-drinking, dry white wine with melon, pear, and sweet red apple flavours with a somewhat oily mid-palate and soft (low) acidity. The reds of Crete, Kotsifali, and Mandilaria, are usually blended together to create a wine with sweet red and black fruit flavours, cinnamon, allspice, and soy sauce, with a softer sweet tannin finish.
