Mylonas Winery Malagousia-Mandilaria 2019
Producer | Mylonas Winery
Country of origin | Greece
Grape Variety | Malagousia
A white variety indigenous to Greece's region of Macedonia. Rich and full-bodied wines with relatively low acidity and a fragrant bouquet of peach, apricot and light hints of muscat
From the Aegean Islands in Greece, this red variety makes vibrant, fruity wines with strong tannins and high acidity
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
Bright pale salmon colour. Intense aromas of spring flowers, red fruit and hints of mineral notes.Rich aromas on the palate accentuated by crispy, fresh notes and a spicy aftertaste.
