Domaine Karanika, Cuvee Prestige Extra Brut 2017

Sparkling Wine - Assyrtiko, Xinomavro

Applying the traditional method of Champagne, this marriage between the lovely and elegant white Assyrtiko and the extraordinary structured xinomavro wine remained on its lees for at least 48 months acquiring highly complex and a unique character that can be envied by several champagnes worldwide.

Attractive white gold, with persistent bubbles. White blossom and yeast zooming like bees in a field of flowers, lemon curd and fine pastry meander shamelessly to the nose. Expect big flavours, a mix of fresh mint, anise taste, yellow apple and perfectly balanced acidity-bitters that playfully stay in the mouth for a very long time.
