Sparkling, Dry, White, Xinomavro, Organic.
Blanc de Noir sparkling wine from organically grown Xinomavro grapes at the Amynteo region. Made after the méthode traditionnelle by the Dutch -with Greek roots- winemaker Laurens Hartman at the Karanika Estate in Amynteo, Florina Greece.
From selected 40 years old vines of Xinomavro, grown in the cold climate of the Amynteo region, next to lake Vegoritis at an altitude of 650 meters.
The estates winemaking philosophy is minimal handling of grapes and wines, what means no pumping to transport must and wines, but gravity, piegage instead of pumping over etc. The estate also follows organic farming practices.
Persistent, excellent foaming, achieved with a second fermentation in the bottle (methode traditionelle), with small-size bubbles to travel and carry 'messages' freshness at the top of the flute glass, which will highlight all the aromatic character of the wine. Stylish, elegant nose with bold hints of herbs and toasted bread, yeast and nuts. The mouth is brut dry, with fruity acidity that enhances the feeling of freshness created by the foaming. It's the ultimate aperitif, but also great combination alongside fat foods, like smoked salmon and caviar or jamon.
