Lihnos 2015

Dry White Wine
PGI Crete

A delightful example of a wine from one of Crete’s most popular and up-and-coming native grapes. A delicate organic white with a very interesting and discrete floral nose, and a palate that’s perfectly balanced, fresh and broad. This is a wine that can certainly be enjoyed on its own, as an aperitif, although pairing it with food is endlessly more interesting. Summery salads, pasta dishes, white soft cheeses and seafood starters are top candidates!

Dry White Wine

Malvasia Aromatica, as its name hints, is probably the most aromatic grape grown in Crete. In addition it’s a grape with a rich history that spans many centuries. This is indeed a beautifully made, fresh white wine that’s extremely generous in oozing aromas of flowers and sweet spices in the nose, while the palate is soft and crisp. Enjoy it as an aperitif, or pair it with starters and main courses in light sauces and garnished with fresh herbs.
