ENOTRIA Rose Dry wine

“Enótria” means “Land of Wine”.

 

A seductive rosé wine, a blend of two varieties: the authentic Cretan Kotsifali (60%) and the French origininated Syrah (40%).

 

In the area of Dafnes, near Heraklion (Crete), at 350 metres above sea level.

 

Before alcoholic fermentation, pre-fermentation in the form of cold maceration takes place, separately for each grape variety. Grapes are crushed and the skins remain in contact with the juice for a short period time; this happens in order to achieve the pleasant rose colour of the wine. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at 17°C in stainless steel tanks.

 

Alcohol : 13,8% vol
Residual sugar: 2,1 gr/lt
Total acidity: 5,3 gr/lt
Total Sulfur: 145 mg/lt

 

187ml, 375ml, 750ml

 

The wine is fresh and not intended for ageing. Therefore, early consumption is recommended.

 

Rich rose-coloured wine, similar to the colour of the grains of a pomegranate, with gentle orange hues. The aroma is reminiscent of strawberry and cherry. Fruity and juicy flavour with just a hint of caramel. It has a soft and pleasant aftertaste.

 

Should be served at 10°C. It is ideal for summer, for a barbecue, for a picnic or just for sitting outside in your garden and enjoying. This wine pairs well with some traditional Greek starters, for example "fava pantremeni" (boiled split peas with onion), octopus tentacles in wine sauce or butter beans (giant white beans) with spinach in tomato sauce. It is perfect with lamb or young goat chops, cooked medium. It complements fish dishes such as striped red mullet, red mullet in the pan, smoked mussels, scallops, grilled octopus tentacles and pasta with seafood. It would also be an ideal companion to a fresh fruit salad full of red summer berries.
