Ktima Pavlidis
Category: Protected Geographical Indication Drama
Varietal composition: Sauvignon Blanc, Assyrtiko

Vinification
The perfect ripening of the grapes and the carefully selected date of harvest, which is practicated during the night, contribute to the preservation of varietal aromas and natural acidity. Destemming and light-crushing is followed by skin-contact at low temperature, longtime pressing and controlled fermentation of the juice at 18 0C in inox tanks. A three months period staying on lees gives certain roundness to this wine.

Specific characteristics
Light yellow - green colour. Complex nose beginning with intense fruity aromas of exotic fruits and continuing with compounding hints of citron and peach. Well balanced and richly flavored in mouth with pleasing freshness. Clean and fruity aftertaste finishing with the characteristic crispness of Assyrtiko.

Serving tips
Serve at 9-11oC, to bring out all the richness of aroma and freshness of flavour. Serve with: seafood and shellfish dishes, pasta with white sauces, white meats and salads.
