Robola Unfiltered White Vino di Sasso, Sclavos 2022
The Sclavos family traces its roots back for centuries in Cephalonia. A branch of the family immigrated in 1700 to the Black Sea port of Odessa in modern day Ukraine. As early as 1860 records exist of Evriviadis Great-Great Grandfather owning a large winery and family estate in Odessa. In 1919, following the Russian revolution, Evriviadis Grandfather returned back to the island of Cephalonia to their property of 6 hectares
in the Paliki peninsula where he planted his first vines of Mavrodaphne and Vostilidi, some of which are still in use today. Two generations later the domaine vineyards are assiduity cared for and have been cultivated for the past 20 years biodynamically. In addition to this Sclavos Wines also sources another 4 hectares from local farmers in the Robola Zone of the island and have recently planted their own vines within the area.
Bright lemon-green in colour, the wine has an intense nose with aromas of citrus fruits, tangerine and grapefruit, pear, peach and floral hints with a mineral background. The palate is medium bodied with crisp acidity. Concentrated and juicy with aromas of lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach and bergamot complemented by
mineral hints. Long aftertaste with a honey finish.
