Aromatic, round and sapid. Chrysanthemum and fresh almond.
The Malagousia Neilis 2020 from Anastasia Fragou estate has a pale yellow colour.
On the nose it’s rather aromatic with jack fruit, chrysanthemum and fresh almond.
On the mouth it’s round with a nice freshness, and sapid. The bouquet on the palate is floral and bitter with almond paste and nettle.
The finish is medium long.
Malagousia (aka Malagouzia) is a white Greek wine grape.
In the past it risked extinction. In fact, Malagousia was resurrected only in the 70s and 80s did thanks to Vassilis Logothetis, a professor of oenology, and Vangelis Gerovassiliou, one of his students.
If the Gerovassiliou sounds familiar, it’s because Vangelis is now the owner of one of the best known wine estates in Greece. Of course he produces his own Malagousia!Link to here...
