Ζafeirakis Malagousia Palaiomylos 2018

(90+)

The Zafeirakis family has been engaged in viticulture in the Tyrnavos area for more than 100 years. Christos Zafeirakis is the fourth generation to practice this long-standing tradition of the family and is considered to be one of the key advocates of finesse in Greek winemaking. His reputation is closely linked to the revival of Limniona grape, but also produces exceptional white wines from varieties such as Malagousia and Chardonnay. Vines of up to 20 years old from sandy-clay soils with high concentration of flint in the area of Tirnavos. Altitude varies from 200 to 300m. Vinification with indigenous yeasts and further maturation with the lees for 5 months in stainless steel tanks.

A more restrained, mineral expression of Malagousia with herbal nuances, along fresh citrus fruit and jasmine notes. Extremely stylish with just 12% alcohol. Perfect pairing fresh cheeses, exotic flavors with curry and risotto.
