2015 Vidiano Klima, Karavitakis

2015 Vidiano Klima, Karavitakis
ref. KARA150 NOV16

Wine Variety: Not a great deal is known about this variety, Vidiano, which seems certain to be autochthonous to the island of Crete. It had almost died out but was then found planted in some multi-varietal vineyard plantings. It has since been propagated and Vidiano vineyards are now gaining in acreage. 

Wine Region: The wines of Candia (as Crete was then known, as a part of the Republic of Venice) were especially popular in the Middle Ages. Crete's a big place: the main grape-growing area lies near Heraklion and is the second biggest vineyard area in the whole country. Many vineyards here are at altitude: up to almost 900 meters above sea level. 

Wine Producer: Karavitakis was founded in 1998 by Manolis Karavitakis. They work 3 hectares close to the winery, but also buy in fruit from local growers. The winery is located near Chania and the Karavitakis family also produce raisins and olive oil.

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

Nose here a delicious combination of very clean mixed citrus and orchard fruits including lemon and lime, as well as ripe pears and a hint of white peach. After an impressive nose, the palate just ratchets things up yet further with great density to its fabulous fruit. Within is a cached body of minerality and this goes very long indeed. Drink it colder on its own, or let it come up the thermometer a bit on the dinner table. Fabulous and really serious white wine.
