Vilana PGI, White
This indigenous grape variety Vilana from Crete was used as early as the 13th century to produce the famous Malvasia wines, which were exported from the historic port of Monemvasia. The hand-picked grapes are pressed lightly so that they pop up and the juice can run out. This method gives the wine a pleasant and balanced body.
Pale yellow colour with glints of green. Citrus and white-fleshed fruit aromas with hints of flowers. Full taste with a refreshing acidity and all the nose aromas present in the mouthfeel.
