Manolis Garalis ‘Terra Ambera’ Lemnos PDO 2019

Estate: Focusing on crafting wines that express the unique volcanic terroir of Lemnos Island, 3rd generation winemaker Manolis Garalis founded his estate in 2006. His 5 hectares of vineyards in the northern Aegean are certified organic.

Winemaking: Vines were planted between 1972-2015, are 150 meters in elevation, with “volcanic soil poor in nutrients, with some limestone”. Spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts, 4 months of skin contact in stainless steel +1 month skin contact in old oak, unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Pale orange in colour, very aromatic; with peach, orange, apricot, lemon, pink grapefruit, citrus blossom, chamomile, nutmeg, coriander seed and spearmint. Pink grapefruit, peach, apricot, mandarin orange, fig, white flowers, clover honey and a beam of citrus acidity are accented by saline minerality and a steak of bitter almond. Light green tea tannins fuse with pink grapefruit and spearmint on the flinty finish. Bright, sleek, engaging.
