"Orizontes"... a summer wine from the "Preknadi", "Roditis" & "Malagouzia" varieties!
"Orizontes" (horizons) from "Elinos Winery" is a fresh & fruity wine from 3 indigenous Greek white grape varieties.
"Malagousia" grapes are grown all over Greece & the name appears on many best selling labels. It stands out for its finesse, balance & aromatic qualities. Whether used in blends like in Orizontes or as a single varietal, the grape produces wines of medium alcohol content, with an exceptionally expressive nose & aromas of flowers (rose), white-flesh fruits (pears, mango, peach), herbs (apple geranium, mint, sage) & citrus fruits (lemon, orange, grapefruit).
The combination with "Roditis" & "Preknadi" gives a wine with yellow colour & golden highlights. Crisp, fresh, with notes of lemon & citrus peel on the nose, great acidity & beautifully rounded finish.
A wonderful summer wine!
