A very Greek balancing act between sweet fruity freshness and dry, almost mineral, citrus bitterness.APPELLATION: Macedonia - GreeceVINEYARD: Ktima Biblia Chora is an organic vineyard located in the foothills of Mount Pangaion in Kavala, Northern Greece. Founded by two oenologists in 1998, it has since expanded its footprint and has a state-of-the-art wine-making facility, combining ancient tradition with modern technology. At 400 meters altitude, on infertile and rocky but well-drained soil, the estate follows the principles of organic cultivation, using traditional methods for such tasks as leaf-thinning and harvesting.GRAPES: 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% AssyrtikoPREPARATION: This classic yet modern wine arises from the clever idea to wed aromatic, sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc with the region's historic, expansive Assyrtiko. A few hours of pre-fermentation maceration leads to low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel vats. This wine was chosen for a dinner held in Athens for German Chancellor Angela Merkel.PAIRING: Serve with fish; seafood; green salads; grilled vegetables; white pastas; white cheese platters. Try with Artichoke and Heart of Parmesan Risotto, or honor the wine's essential spirit by enjoying it with grilled shrimp, Greek salad, and hearty bread, or spinach and feta cheese pastries.RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10°CALCOHOL: 13%”
