Afianes Pithari White 2018
“Amphora Dreams” Icaria Island, Greece
Out of stock
An impressive, rare white wine with maximum yearly output under 1000 bottles. Made from the Begleri variety that is cultivated only in the tiny, volcanic island of Icaria; The spontaneous fermentation takes place in multiple, small 6-litre clay pots, buried in the ground in the traditional Icarian way. The fermentation progresses all the way naturally from start to finish at ambient temperatures over 4-6 weeks. The aromas and palate are rich in pear, melon and stone fruit flavours with savoury overtones. Full and substantial, alongside a velvet textural coating, thanks to its clay vessel maturation.
We recommend serving chilled but not very cold, ideally around 12-14c (30-40 minutes in the fridge). Opens up beautifully over the course of 60-90 minutes from opening.
