The variety...

Malagousia (pronounced simply as Mala-goo-zia) is an ancient grape that was rediscovered in in the last twenty years, during the modern renaissance of the New Wines of Greece. It is the impersonation of Greek wine producers, taking advantage of their potential, as they began exploring the secrets of the famous grape. In the 1970s, Malagousia was a Greek white variety unknown to most of the wine lovers, where it was thought to be completely extinct.
