Markogianni Orange Roditis 2018

(88+)

Τhe Markogianni winery was founded in 1982 and is now run by second generation brother and sister Yiannis and Antonia Christopoulos. The name of the winery, Markogianni, pays homage to their grandfather. It is situated near Ancient Olympia, in a terroir which is highly influenced by the Ioanian Sea and Alfeios river. The winery currently produces 25.000 bottles, but there is potential for growth. They cultivate organically since 2001, and their emphasis is on accentuating the expression of autochthonous varieties such as Mandilaria, Vertzami and Roditis. 

Orange is a Roditis vinified as naturally as possible and in contact with the skins. Pale gold color. Complex on the nose with pear, quince and herbs. Medicinal as well. Vivacious and fat on the palate with a mineral dimension and a yeasty finish. Promising effort. Greece&Grapes 11.80€
