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 to some Greek traditional dishes, like "yemista" (vegetables stuffed with rice, flavoured with spearmint and fennel), "ladera" (mostly vegetables, cooked in olive oil) or the delicious fennel pie.
