Ktima Biblia Chora Ovilos White Pangeon Semillon Assyrtiko 2019

Intense notes of white peach and pink grapefruit
combined with exotic herbs and white pepper through

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.


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-ofthe-art 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.
