Melissea

Clear, golden yellow colour combined perfectly with a heavy, extremely fragrant bouquet of wild flowers. In terms of taste it features a rich body with good structure where honey and ripe fruit successfully compete with one another. Rounded with a crisp and robust acidity that combined with the long and soft aftertaste bring out this wine as one of the best of its kind.

Melissea is served in a flute glass, at 6-8°C and accompanies perfectly roasted almonds, soft salty cheese (roquefort, kopanisti cheese of Mykonos, gorgonzola), ice cream and sorbet fruit, creams (caramel, crème brûlée, pana cotta).

Bottled in a limited number of bottles.
