Why do we love it?

Why did we like it? Where to get started? From the emblematic label, the rare variety, the limited quantity (only 3000 bottles) or that it is an amazingly complex and delicious wine? In all the above mentioned add the "signature" of Petrakopoulos Winery, which creates diamonds with explosive Kefallonian personality and insistence on the prominence of the terroir of the island.

Zakynthino is a rare Greek variety that originates in Zakynthos but is cultivated with great results in Kefalonia. Nikos Petrakopoulos and Kiki Samielis extract, from old, non-irrigated, organic vineyards, pure "gold". Hard work on the vineyard and minimal interventions and ornaments during the vinification give an incredibly expressive wine that does not look like and compares to anything else you have tried.

Its price is unrivaled for its quality and almost urges you to take more than one bottle to see its wonderful evolution in time ...

Tastes Like

It has moderate gold color, just as its name declares.

In the nose that that stands out is its complexity. Quince, kumquat, lime zest, pear, juicy lemon, lemon blossoms, jasmine, honeysuckle, toast and flint notes compose a delightful set.

On the palate it has medium to full body, with a refreshing acidity that perfectly balances with the oily texture and condensation. Juicy, ripe citrus meet peach and pineapple, on a mineral background. Delicious, lemony, persistent aftertaste!

PAIR IT

Steamed mussels with white wine and black pepper

  • 1 kg mussels, whole (with shell) cleaned and scraped. Alternatively prefer frozen
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped
  • 3 tbsps. of finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 glass of white wine, preferably Assyrtiko

Place the mussels without water in a large saucepan or pan on a high heat and add plenty of pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until they open. Throw away mussels that will remain closed. Pour in the wine and leave it for a 1 minute in the heat until the excess of liquids is reduced.

Drain the mussels and hold the liquid left in the pan. Place the mussels in a deep platter. Drain the liquors from the mussels and pass them through a cheesecloth and then put them in a small bowl. Add the parsley to the bowl, stir, pour the mixture over the mussels, and serve.
