Drink it now or hold it for 2-3 years. No need to decant.

Founded in 1989 by the oenologist Giannis Tselepos, the Tselepos Estate winery is perched among the Mantineia vineyards, and equipped with a state-of-the-art cellar and winemaking facilities for the production of quality wine, including sparkling wines produced with the method traditional of Champagne. The vineyards extend for 45 hectares at the eastern foot of Mount Parnon at 750 meters above sea level, and include indigenous grape varieties such as Moschofilero and other international grape varieties.

This is a special wine made from 100% Gewurztraminer, coming from the Melissopetra vineyard plot, located at an altitude of 750m on shist soils. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel, to maintain freshness.

The wine has a light and brilliant yellow color and all the aromatic intensity typical of this delicious grape variety. On the nose, there is a lot of exotic fruit, but also rose petals, stone fruit and acacia flowers with some final citrus notes. On the palate, the wine is pleasantly dry, with good acidity and medium body. The fruity flavors return with harmonious intensity and the overall sensation is extremely fragrant. Try it with fresh herb sea tartare, Thai food and fish preparations served with exotic spices.
