Lagorthi

Lagorthi is a rare – almost unknown – white-skinned grape variety, grown mainly in Achaia, in the northern Peloponnese. It tends to give fresh, light-bodied wines with low alcohol but high acidity levels. Lagorthi grapes tend to give wines that are lightly aromatic. Floral and citrus fruits aromas, like lemon and lime, are dominant and often complemented with some mineral notes. It does not take well to oak and is usually blended with Greek or international grape varieties. Its fresh character and high acidity pair perfectly with salads, seafood, and light lemony dishes with fish or white meat.
