Malagousia is one of the oldest and well known varieties of Greece.
The exceptional Thracian vineyards, the fermentation at low temperatures and the four month remaining sur lee compose a wine with a strong aromatic character, offering a bouquet of flowers, peach and citrus fruits and a well-rounded fleshy body with a refreshing acidity.
It is best served with grilled shrimps, small fish, and pasta with light white sauce.
Enjoy it cool at 10-120C.
Malagousia is the quintessence of the modern renaissance of the New Wines of Greece witnessed in the last twenty years. It is the personification of the way Greek wine producers are rediscovering their potential. In the 1970s, Malagousia was a white variety known to very few and thought to be extinct. Today, after painstaking work from university professors and top growers, Malagousia is widely considered a world class grape, producing outstanding dry whites, as well as a few dazzling sweet examples.
