Protected Geographical Indication Laconia 100% Kydonitsa

A rare, indigenous variety of Laconia that has been grown, studied and vinificated with devotion in our organic, minimum intervention vineyards for 15 years. The name Kydonitsa derives from the Greek word "KYAONI" which is quince. The correlation becomes more obvious when someone actually tastes Kydonitsa grapes: the skin of the grape is particularly thick and tannic, leaving your mouth dry, 2018    as biting a quince usually does. The strong character of the fruit is still present on the wine where we detect some delightful quince notes and a tight palate structure.

White vinification in a stainless-steel tank, fermented at a controlled temperature of up to 180 C and maturing for five months on the fine lees with periodic stirring.The aromatic and flavor profile of the wine composes of quince, apple geranium,citrus,passion fruit.  The acidity adds some youthful freshness, while the extended maturation on fine lees adds depth and aging perspective. It is specially combined with grilled fish with savory olive oil and lemon sauce and shellfish.

Served particularly cool at 8-10 oc .
