Lantides, Little Ark White
Brilliant straw colour with greenish shades. On the nose the wine shows expressive notes of exotic fruit and notes of melon, lemon, green pepper, and jasmine with orange. The mouth is delightfully rich with flavours of peach and green apple and a lemony fresh finish that lingers and evolves. This wine is made from a blend of Malagouzia and Assyrtiko planted on the plateau on the Scotini Mountain at 700m. By being planted at this height helps ensure the freshness and acidity that makes this wine so mouth-watering.
Ideal with Greek salads, shellfish and grilled white fish.
LITTLE ARK is the result of the effort to promote quality vineyards of Greece by choosing the best indigenous Greek grape varieties. From the quality winelands of Greece, we create wines with character, with respect for the requirements of each different variety, with a view to ensuring the maximum possible quality and performance of the grapes.
The Lantides Estate is a family business started in 1993 by Panikos Landidis, who had previously studied in Montpellier and Bordeaux in oenology, with the goal of promoting Greek wine. The soil and climate of Nemea were favourable to cultivate noble grape varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Moschofilero, Assyrtiko and Malagouzia on its lands. The Lantides Estate is situated in the ancient site of Nemea, in the heart of the Peloponnese, north of Argos and just west of Corinth on the coast of the Aegean. Panikos and his son Simon run 25 hectares of vineyards which are situated around the mountainous valley of Skoteini in altitude between 500 - 650 meters above sea level. Today Panikosí knowledge is used to make quality wines using local varieties that are native to Greece.
