Prinos Malvasia di Candia Aromatica - Chardonnay - Protected Geographical Indication "Crete" | Diamantakis Winery


Prinos Malvasia di Candia Aromatica - Chardonnay - Protected Geographical Indication


This particular wine is a blend of two white varieties. It combines an intense and complex bouquet thanks to Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, but also a complex and rich taste thanks to Chardonnay. Prinos White has a bright, soft, yellow colorin conbination with a balanced, pleasant bouquet with prominent aromas of pineapple, banana and lemon blossom. Satisfying mouthful with long lasting aftertaste.
