Raw wine | Orange | Food wine
Its colour is slightly orange and yellow. It has not been filtered, therefore has a noticeable turbidity and a possible thin layer of sediment. Full and tannic body. Its aromas are more complicated and evolved than the intense flowerish aromas one would expect from a fresh Muscat wine. Aromas of fruit and nuts, like hazelnut, yellow apple, honey, bergamot and dried orange.
"MUSCAT AMPHORA" was launched in 2017. This wine was vinificated in almost the same way wine was produced in Crete 4.000 years ago.

Serving Amphora Muscat White wine
Should be served at 10-12⁰C. It can be wonderfully combined with red meat due to tannins. Enjoy it with spicy baked lamb, dare to try it also with a steak. It would perfectly accompany roasted fatty fish (salmon, tuna, eel) with citrus sauces, or smoked aged cheeses as well. Its complex profile can complement dishes with spices, such as saffron, cinnamon or cardamom. So, it is well combined with Moroccan or Asian dishes, and it also balances special flavours like traditional Japanese cuisine (soy).Follow a recipe

|2019||Greece||Γιάννης Καρακάσης (Yannis Karakasis), MW||www.karakasis.mw||2017||Skin contact method. Aromatic with a nose reminiscent one of a sweet wine with gardenia, bergamot and quince scents. Slightly tannic on the palate and full throttled with warm alcohol and the overall balance giving a sweet - fruit feeling.|
