Wine of the week - Areti White from Ktima Biblia Chora

Where?

Ktima Biblia Chora is situated on the southern slopes of Mount Pangeon in Kavala, Northern Greece just 100km East of Thessaloniki. In 1998, Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis Gerovassiliou created this privately owned vineyard which today extends over 118 acres at an altitude of 300-420 meters. The soil is rocky and barren with limestone and clay and good levels of drainage. The cool breezes from the Agean Sea and Mount Pangeon are key factors in the production of these amazing wines.

Which Grapes?

100% Assyrtiko - Assyrtiko or Asyrtiko is a white Greek wine grape indigenous to the island of Santorini and also found on other scattered regions of Greece.  Many old vine plantations (over 70 years of age) of Assyrtiko exists, of which many are non-grafted. These plantations have shown resistance to Phylloxera.

What about the Wine?

Wine is bright with a pale yellow colour. Aromas of citrus, lemon, grapefruit and almonds.  Fresh and elegant on the palate.
