Organic dry white wine Malagouzia "Enarxis"

The "Enarxis" Malagouzia is incredibly tasty and cool with strong aromas both in the nose and in the mouth. It successfully expresses the dynamics of the "star" variety of the Greek Vineyard but also its adaptation to the terroir of the region!

Winemaker's Note

It stands out for its bright appearance and lemon-green color.
Explosively aromatic with aromas of fruits (peach, apricot, pear, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lime, lemon), white flowers (jasmine & chamomile), and herbs (spearmint & mint).
The taste of the wine is delicious with a crisp acidity that gives it a freshness and cool feeling. A balanced Malagouzia with a rich & full body and a gently spicy aftertaste that makes it pleasant & exciting.

Serving recommendations: Best served at 8°-10°C in a tulip-shaped glass for white aromatic wines.

Food pairing

It ideally accompanies the 'Enarxis' (beginning) of a meal such as cool green salads with citrus dressing.
Enjoy it with risotto or seafood pasta. It combines harmoniously with Asian & Mediterranean cuisine, with grilled fish, chicken, and pork breaded or grilled, with light white sauces. Ideal to accompany the traditional appetizers of Greek cuisine such as stuffed vine leaves "dolmadakia", vegetable pies, and cheese pies. The perfect summer aperitif can harmoniously end a meal by accompanying yellow cheeses and fruits.
