Description

Anatolikos Limnio 2017

Anatolikos Limnio gave us a miracle wine once again! Limnio 2017 of Anatolikos Vineyards is here and it’s simply mindblowing! With just the right doses of concentration, finesse, balance and complexity.
Medium ruby colour. The epitome of the fruit: berry, cherry, sour cherry, strawberry, that you almost chew! In two words, intoxicating and elegant. It’s like spring in Japan, when the cherries blossom and the first strawberries come out. The crisp acidity and the juicy, well-polished tanins are impeccably balanced.  Intricate layers of forest floor, granite minerals, vanilla and hints of leather and tobacco. With sweet chocolate, cocoa and vanilla oak spices. Intoxicating and elegant with a crisp acidity, gentle tannins and an exuberant aftertaste.

It is known that Sakis and Marios Nicolaides have the touch of Midas and turn everything into gold! This happened with Limnio as well. The oldest variety of Greece, in their hands gave its best. 100% Limnio. Harvest by hand in small baskets. From a certified organic vineyard located on the dry hills of Avdira city with an altitude of 50–70 meters and approximately 5 km away from the Thrace Sea. The terrain is sandy with continuous cool northeast winds. Avdira’s microclimate contributes decisively in the production of high-quality products.
Fermentation with domestic yeast at a controlled temperature. Maturation on lees for 12 months in oak barrels. No filtering or any other treatments before bottling. Enjoy today or within 5 years from vintage.
