Where - Amyndeo, Greece
What - Xinomavro/Limniona
Body - Medium
Style - Smashable
Domaine Karanika make some of the best sparkling wines in Greece (along with some great Assyrtiko). Amyndeo is the coolest climate of all the Greek winegrowing regions, which allows them to make beautiful high acid wines from a combination of sandy soils. Old vines and organic viticulture are at the heart of this family winery. The Cuvee Rose is mainly ungrafted Xinomavro and a touch of Limniona. Fruity, mineral and slightly yeasty nose, aromas of strawberry, raspberries. Everlasting tiny bubbles. The wine’s impressive structure is based on acidity and some tannins finished off with a long citrus aftertaste.
