Gavalas Katsano

$38.25

 

 

 

🌍 Region: Santorini

🏺 Winery: Gavalas

🍇 Grape Variety: Katsano, Gaidouria

👀 Color: Yellow with green highlights

👃 Nose: Aromas of flowers, honey, and lemon blossom.

👄 Taste: On the palate, it develops a rich taste with an exceptional balance, pleasant acidity, and a long aftertaste. kkGreen apple, peach, and pear dominate the nose and initial taste. The medium body is followed by lovely acidity, while the finish is dry and fruity. It is a great seeping wine, but will match perfectly with Mediterranean seafood, like dorado, or branzino off the grill, or a lobster spaghetti dish.
