LYCOVOUNO WHITE

Laconian Regional Wine, White Dry
Grape Variety: Asyrtiko 100%
Organic wine. DIO certified.
2010 grape harvest: 2,500 bottles.

Wine making process: Grape harvest in the beginning of September. Pre-fermentation soak at a very low temperature in order to acquire and maintain the variety’s aromatic compounds, sorting of only the free run grape juice received without destemming, immediate racking of the grape juice, fermentation at a low temperature of 12°C, maturation in French and American oak barrels through bottonage for 2-3 months and then bottling.

Organoleptic characteristics: Blond-yellow colour with soft golden yellow shades, intense and compound flavours conveying fine aromas of mature apple, melon and mango, combined with aromas of roasted almond, vanilla, honey and biscuit.  Full body, fatty in an elegant way, with a special minerality.  Aromatic aftertaste that lasts.

Harmony of tastes: Served at 11-13°C. It accompanies perfectly fried cheese, roasted potatoes with fresh spices, fatty fish roasted on charcoal, grape vine leaves with rice stuffing, cheese pies and vegetable pies.
