EROCHOS WHITE
Assyrtko, Roditis, Sauvignon Blanc
Protected geographical location Parnassus

"Eros and hous" means "Love for the earth" .

Our love for the land of Parnassos made us create "Erochos". It is the first wine that was vinified on the estate in 2003 and takes its name from the ancient name of the village of Polydroso.

A wine from the marriage of the Greek varieties Assyrtiko and Roditi, and the international Sauvignon Blanc.

 

Light green-yellow color, soft in texture, unique aromas of citrus and fruit with a soft and elegant taste. A balanced wine with a light aftertaste.
