Dafnios”, from the name of our village, Dafnes. An excellent wine made with 100% Vidiano grape; a very old Cretan grape which for many years was ignored, but due to the arduous and persistent efforts of some inspired winemakers of Crete has come back to the foreground and has given high quality wines in recent years.

Product description

Vineyard: In the area of Dafnes, near Heraklion (Crete), at 350 metres above sea level.
Vinification: Classic white vinification with fermentation in stainless steel tanks, at a temperature of 18°C. There is no barrel usage, in either the fermentation or maturation.
Characteristics: Pale golden colour. Medium intensity aromas of yellow and citrus fruits, which are combined with a little more intense aromas of chamomile, jasmine and spices. Full and rich flavour presenting the tasting characteristics of apricot and flowers. Very pleasant, balanced acidity and fine finish.
Serving suggestion: Should be served at a temperature of 9-10°C; it would be a fine accompaniment to some fish, like sole "meunière", John Dory, grilled mackerel and weakfish. It would also accompany pork with celery, the traditional Cretan pork with leeks, lamb "fricassée" with lettuce. Also, it would make an ideal companion to soup of chickpeas with lemon sauce or salad of boiled chickpeas with herbs.
Ageing: The wine itself can be aged for four years.
