PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION (P.G.I.) FLORINA
Region / Location / Vineyard:
Amyndeon plateau. Amyndeon viticulture zone. North-western Macedonia. “Turtles” sub-region. 670m altitude, with north-western exposure, facing mount Voras. 69ha of Linear, privately owned vineyard situated at an altitude of 620-710m.
Destemming, no crushing, cold soak – skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, maintenance of wine “sur lies” for two months with regular stirring.
Brilliantly, light yellow in color with greenish tints. Strong and lively nose, typical Malagouzia, suggesting rose petal with floral aromas and sweet spices, melon, litchi with a note of honeysuckle. Round and mellow on the palate, fat but balanced, high in alcohol with plenty of finesse. Well structured, reminding the nose aromas with a hint of rosemary. A richly textured wine with superb length and balance. A classy wine with long finish and persistent aromas.
Excellently married with green salads, baked vegetables, pasta, low fat fishes and a wide variety of Greek sea food “Meze”.
Best served at 11°C.
