Sparkling Wine - 100% Xinomavro
The flagship. Made from 100% Xinomavro ungrafted vines. A sparkling blanc de noirs with the traditional method. Unfiltered. Razor sharp and very aromatic. Expressive nose of citrus, stone fruits and herbs. Everlasting bubbles. Aged for at least 12 months on the lie. Riddled and disgorged by hand.
A sweet, fragrant wine produced from the Muscat grape, is best served with fruit, cheese or on its own as a dessert wine. It possesses enough acidity to balance its sweetness and thus it can be combined with cheese or fruits. It is delightful also as an aperitif. Best drinking temperature: 8-10°C. A wine that improves with age, developing more complex aromas.
Bright, white and yellow colour with greenish highlights. A pleasant, harmonious and delicious array with a lovely aromatic character, gentle acidity and fine taste.Harmony - Serving Temperature
An excellent aperitif. It fits delightfully with a great variety of dishes, from green salads, fried ordoeuvres, sea food and fish, to light fish dishes, pork fillet and pasta with light sauces.
Enjoy it cool at 10°C.
It was only a matter of time before Karanika decided to make the Assyrtiko sparkling with the traditional method. Not on its own, but blended with 30% Xinomavro. A Champagne style blend without any additives. Highly elegant and subtle. Not so much body but very rich taste. Refreshing acidity, and rich nose with lime, chamomile, pear brioche, and nutty in the end. Very long and impressive length. Aged 24 months on the lie. Riddled and disgorged by hand.
Our most popular wine, a blend from the Muscat and Assyrtiko grapes, grown at 850m., at Sofiana, Corinthia. The nose is dominated by Muscat, whereas the palate combines the fruitiness of Muscat and the body and structure of the Assyrtiko. Drink it with salads, white meat, fish or oysters at 9-11°C.
