Malagousia (or Malagouzià) is the quintessence of the modern renaissance of the new wines of Greece, witnessed since the ’80s. Before that, this variety was known to very few and thought to be extinct.
Today, after painstaking work both from university professors and top oenologists, Malagousia is widely considered a world class grape, producing outstanding dry whites, as well as a few dazzling sweet examples.
It has a distinctive exotic character differently expressed depending on terroir and vinification practices. Thus, the wines can range from lean, minty, herbal styles to more exuberant, peachy and tropical, or even riper, oak aged, always with floral elements.
