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.
