Dry White Wine - PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION CYCLADES
This exquisite wine is the result of George Gavalas’ love and devotion to winemaking and his continuous effort to revive the rare, indigenous varietals of Santorini. It is a blend of 85 % Katsano and 15 % Gaidouria, both grapes varietals unknown outside the island, as they only cover the 1 % of the total vineyard. Due to early ripening the grapes are harvested in the beginning of August. Cold maceration is taking place for few hours and then the fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at 16° C. Before bottling, the wine remains on the lees for approximately two months.
Gavalas’ Katsano is a dry white wine with green highlights and aromas of flowers, honey, lemon and stone fruits. Delicate and light body with exceptional balance and pleasant acidity.
It accompanies salads, shellfish, fish and white meat with light sauces.
