Garalis Limnio 'Short Skin'

Unsurprisingly Limnio is a native of Limnos. Many claim it is the oldest grape still in existence. Whatever the truth is, this ‘short skin’ refers to the length of time the wine is fermented on skins. Its semi carbonic maceration accounts for its light tawny red colour and its wild strawberry scents. The flavours continue on the strawberry theme and there is plenty of tannin and some nice balancing acidity. A minimum intervention wine showing real originality.

Type: Dry Red
Varietal Composition: Limnio 100%
Region: PDO Limnos, Aegean Islands

Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
