Winemaker's Tasting Notes

Melanthia (meaning “black flower”) reflects the unique and intense aromas of roses, that stem from the rare Black Muscat of Tyrnavos, the organically-grown grape that thrives on the South slopes of mount Olympus.

White flower and bergamot notes on the nose, with finesse on the slightly bubbly and spicy palate.

Product size: 750ml
