2021 White, Ekhô, Naxos
We are delighted to have discovered a new wine project that was established only a few years ago in 2020. The grapes are sourced from a high altitude, single vineyard plot on the foothills of Mountain Za, on the island of Naxos, Greece. Exclusively old vines of more than 150 years old, these low yielding, ungrafted bush vines are planted on spectacular rocky and clay terraces.A burst of lemon verbena, white peach and grapefruit combined with ginger and flinty notes are supported by herbal notes on the finish. The crisp acidity balances perfectly with the wine’s salty and tangy profile. The 150 year old vine fruit going into this wine gives concentration and energy that is so rare and so enjoyable to be able to taste.
