Preknadi (Prekniariko)

Preknadi is a rare – almost extinct – white-skinned grape variety, grown mainly in Thessaly and Macedonia. It is names after the ancient Greek name for the freckle (“prekna”), because of the spots on the grape’s skin. It gives wines that are rich and relatively full-bodied with high alcohol levels and low acidity. Wines from Preknadi tend to be lightly aromatic, with aromas and flavours that remind stone fruits and flowers. Preknadi grapes often undergo some oak treatment that gives aromatic complexity and adds aromas of honey, honeysuckle, and spicy notes. Its rich and alcoholic character pairs nicely with less acidic and less lemony dishes with white meat or non-fat white fish.
