It was only a matter of time before Karanika decided to make the Assyrtiko sparkling with the traditional method. Not on its own, but blended with 30% Xinomavro. A Champagne style blend without any additives. Highly elegant and subtle. Not so much body but very rich taste. Refreshing acidity, and rich nose with lime, chamomile, pear brioche, and nutty in the end. Very long and impressive length. Aged 24 months on the lie. Riddled and disgorged by hand.
