Product Description
WHITE DESSERT WINE CAO* LIMNOS *Controlled Appellation of Origin Alcoholic Strength: 16%vol A dessert wine from the Muscat of Limnos grape variety, it is crafted from grapes allowed to reach late maturity and cultivated in selected vineyards of the Sardes area located within Limnos' PDO zone. The late harvest, the low acreage yield, and the flawless vinification conspire in producing a dessert wine that is unrivalled. A brilliant golden-yellow in colour, it captivates at first sight. It allows aromas of well-ripened, white-fleshed fruits and citrus to waft to the nose, in perfect harmony with notes of sweet caramel and exotic cinnamon. It has a full, robust mouth, with sweetness and refreshing acidity in perfect balance. Its blissfully lingering aftertaste is succeeded by the merest whisper of bitter almonds. Enjoy it as an aperitif or as the rightful companion of desserts and fruit platters.

Product History
Most of the Greek white grape varieties have roots that are lost in the mists of time. They give us wines that are easily identified by the distinctive elegant aromas of citrus blossoms and ripe yellow fruit, such as lemon, lime or Peach and yellow apple. The level of fruitiness that you taste in a wine leads to very different growing regions.
