FEMINA White Dry wine

 

“Femina”, a wine of female character.


 

An excellent aromatic food wine, famous during the Venetian Occupation (between the 14th and 16th century AD). It is impressive in its freshness and unique bouquet of aromas. It is exclusively produced from Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, an excellent white grape variety which has achieved more prominence in recent years in Cretan vineyards.


 

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


 

Classic white vinification that takes place in stainless steel tanks, at the controlled temperature of 18°C.


 

Alcohol : 13,5% vol
Residual sugar: 2,1 gr/lt
Total acidity: 6,0 gr/lt
Total Sulfur: 56 mg/lt


 

750ml


 

This wine will age for up to four years.


 

Light golden color, followed by an attractive aroma. The enchanting aroma is reminiscent of lemon blossom, jasmine and some exotic fruits like passion fruits or mangoes. Dry flavour, with a refreshing acidity. Pleasant and long lasting aftertaste.


 

Should be served between 9-10°C and due to its special aromatic personality, it pairs well with fish dishes like bass with fennel bulb or bream stuffed with aromatic herbs. You can also combine it with asparagus omelette. It is an asset to Asian cuisine, sweet and sour dishes and is also unforgettable with sushi. Lastly, not forgetting our beloved Cretan dishes, fresh broad beans with artichokes and aromatic herbs are nicely accompanied with a glass of Femina wine.
