Ktima Biblia Chora Ovilos White Pangeon Semillon Assyrtiko 2021

Intense notes of white peach and exotic fruits combined
with herbs and white pepper through to a lovely, long
and mineral finish, rich and concentrated.
Producer Note
Ktima Biblia Chora is the innovative creation of Vassilis Tsaktsarlis and Vangelis
Gerovassiliou two of the most talented winemakers in Greece. The winery was
established in 1998 and the privately owned vineyard lies on the cool climate slopes of
Mount Pangeon, at Kokkinochori near Kavala. It has been farmed organically since
day one. These exceptional, cutting edge wines are some of the best white wines in
Greece, which have similarities to very good white Bordeaux – not surprising as Vassilis
Tsaktsarlis studied with Denis Dubourdieu; the king of modern white Graves.
Vineyard
Located in the coastal region of Pangeon, Biblia Chora’s privately owned estate
vineyard is situated at 380 metres altitude and extends over 78 hectares. With the
striking Pangeon Mountain as the backdrop and the sea breeze coming from the
Aegean Sea in front the estate, the vines thrive in this mild, Mediterranean climate
which is characterised by mild winters and cool summers. The wide diurnal
temperature range encourages a long, slow maturation of the grapes, concentrating
the flavours in the berries. The vineyard is cultivated according to strict ecological
agricultural standards in order to respect the environment and local flora and fauna.
The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 plants per hectare and all the work in the
vineyard, such as leaf thinning and the harvest is carried out by hand. The soil is rocky
and infertile, with limestone and clay and good levels of drainage. The vineyard is in
conversion to organic.
Winemaking
The Assyrtiko (pronounced Ah-SEER-tee-koe) and Semillon grapes were picked at
optimum maturity and then carefully selected. The wine was vinified in the state-of-theart winery, using modern techniques to ensure the aromatics and varietal flavours were
retained. Each variety was vinified separately in 225 litre French oak barrels, of which
50% were new and 50% were one year old. Maturation lasted for five months, with
bâtonnage taking place in the barrel.
Tasting Note
The distinctive and characteristic aromas of apricot and honey from the Semillon blend
perfectly with the citrus and lemon notes from the Assyrtiko, with nuances of vanilla and
nutty hints adding complexity. Elegant, with a creamy texture, this stylish wine is
beautifully balanced by refreshing palate which leads to a long finish.
