ENOTRIA White Dry wine

 

“Eno’tria” means “Land of Wine”.


 

A charming wine blend of three grape varieties: the Cretan Vilana (70%), the international Sauvignon Blanc (20%) and the Cretan version of the aromatic White Muscat, Muscat White (of Spina) (10%).


 

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


 

Classic white vinification with fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at low temperature 18°C, in order to express in a great way the aromatic compounds of the three grape varieties and to preserve the full fruity character of the wine. Each grape variety is vinified separately.


 

Alcohol : 13,2% vol
Residual sugar: 2,1 gr/lt
Total acidity: 6,0 gr/lt
Total Sulfur: 48 mg/lt


 

187ml, 375ml, 750ml


 

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


 

The wine is pale, almost straw-like in colour, has a great aromatic and fruity expression which prevails in its structure and character. This wine retains its freshness due to the well balanced acidity, leaving a refreshing aftertaste.


 

Should be served very cool, at 10°C, and would make an ideal companion to a variety of foods, such as small fried fish, mild in taste seafood, chicken with estragon and white or black-eyed beans flavoured with oregano and thyme. It would also make an ideal combination with some Greek traditional dishes, like "yemista" (vegetables stuffed with rice, flavoured with spearmint and fennel), "ladera" (mostly vegetables, cooked in olive oil) or with the delicious fennel pie.
