Anatolikos Malagousia Wild White 2019
Golden-red colour with green shades. Complex and dense nose of Mediterranean herbs, chamomile and wild white flowers, basil and mint. A fruit bomb of grapefruit and lemon citrus, pineapple, yellow peach and complementary subtle notes of granite minerals. The palate has a beautiful balance of excellent flavours, lively acidity, textural mouthfeel and long aftertaste.
In Avdira city, known from ancient times as the city of Thrace, a struggle began in 2000 to revive famous ancient vineyards. Contributing in this initiative, Αnatolikos Vineyards began farming Greek and foreign grape varieties in 2005. They apply organic cultivation and practices in the vineyard. Their vineyards are located on the dry hills of Avdira city with an altitude of 50–70 meters and approximately 5 km away from the Thrace Sea. The terrain is sandy with continuous cool northeast winds. Avdira’s microclimate contributes decisively in the production of high-quality products.
