1 x FOUNDI ESTATE ‘TRYGIAS’ BLANC DE NOIR PGI 2016

$45.00

Vinification: This outstanding dry white wine is produced from black grapes of the Xinomavro variety which is cultivated in the appellation zone of Naoussa.
Cold maceration following careful pressing of the grapes, prior to debourbage. Small quantity of juice from the inner white flesh, then stored in new French oak barrels, where fermentation takes place at a controlled low temperature. Aged 7 months in barrel on it’s fine lees with battonage, further 6 months in bottle before release. The result is a full-bodied wine, rich in aromatic scents which are harmoniously combined with its natural bouquet and the delicate scent of wood.

Food matching: Grilled or oven baked white flesh fish with a white sauce. Also excellent with game.

A unique wine which demonstrates the potential of Xinomavro to yield white wines of real character. Golden colour. Complex bouquet which combines Xinomavro’s aromas from fruit and white flowers with the aromas of the barrel (honey, nuts, coffee, chocolate and smoke.) Full-bodied with peppery notes in the mouth and a long finish. One of the few Greek white wines that will repay bottle-ageing.
