Domaine Karanika

The vision

At Domaine Karanika we produce the finest quality sparkling and still wines in total harmony with nature without any concession to the health of people and the earth.

Our organic/ biodynamic vineyards at the Amyndeo plateau in the far North-west of Greece include old to very old ungrafted Xinomavro vines, the younger Assyrtiko and the almost forgotten Limniona. Our wines range from the sparkling Karanika Cuvee Speciale and Prestige, our aged red Xinomavro/Limniona blends to our razor-sharp white Assyrtiko.

The Amyndeon area

Around 650 meters above sea level, it lies on the far side of Mount Vermio, blocked off from the influence of the Aegean. These features of Amyndeon's setting cause the local climate to be entirely continental, though moderated somewhat by the influence of Lake Vegoritis, pushing the Xinomavro vintage for red wine back to mid-October.

Amyndeo has the coolest climate of all the wine-producing regions of Greece. Soil tends to be a sandy clay around Xinonero, on the slopes west of Amydeon, and a sandy loam around Ayios Panteleimonas, on the plain area just west of lake Petron - all with considerable variation in calcium content from vineyard to vineyard.

Domaine Karanika Extra Cuvée de Reserve 150cl

Domaine Karanika, Amyndeon Xinomavro The aromas are of a wine with long ageing on its lees. Lovely bready, yeasty aromas with hints of smoke and truffles set against a clean background. The wine is bone dry, but incredibly supple. Its elegance defies gravity. You could stick this mature flavour bomb of citrus, nuts and honey into a grand Champagne tasting, and you would be hard pressed to know it wasn’t an extremely good example of Premier Cru from the Montagne de Reims. Such subtlety and elegance. It still tastes young and whilst it could be drunk with pleasure now, it will carry on ageing gracefully for a decade!
