2 Mazi White | Manousakis Winery - Nostos Wines


2 Mazi White

Clear bright colour with green hues. Rich, dense legs. Delicate nose, with limestone, stonefruits, unripe citrus and plenty of minerality. The Roussanne gives the rich viscosity, while the Vilana gives the fresh acidity and minerality. Drink now but can be aged 4-5 more years.
