Why do we love it?

Undoubtedly one of the wines that stole the impressions in Oenorama 2017, the biggest exhibition of Greek Wine. It is one of those that caused queues to happen and forced anyone who tried it to take notes for it. A natural Robola from the slopes of Enos.

Both Robola and Kefalonia pursue their laurels looking Assyrtiko straight in the eyes. The Ionian island with the huge past in winemaking might be one of the biggest come-backs in history.

For years, the Melissinos winery tries experimental vinifications, just a small amount of bottles at a time, testing different approaches to Kefalonian varieties which seem to appreciate it. The Natural Robola Melissinos Winery from Thiramona Kefalonia redefines the variety with a natural, raw approach making the most from its character and the terroir in which it is grown.

Sulfur far below the limit, zero interference and organic farming in inaccessible slopes of Enos in a single vineyard, gave a wine that speaks directly to the instincts. A wine primitively simple yet complex structured. With acidity as its backbone, get ready to be surprised by the multiple layers of flavor that will make you wonder where they were hiding initially.

Already collective it was bottled in only 500 bottles to be sold directly at the winery. We obtained a few of the bottles left.

Enjoy it now or wait for 2 -3 years because everything indicates that it gets better every minute.

Tastes Like

Pale lemon yellow color in the glass with light golden highlights.

Medium aromatic intensity with notes of honeysuckle, honeycomb, fig leaves, green almond, juicy ripe pear and bergamot. A feeling of wet stone reveals the mineral character of the variety. While waiting in the glass it will reveal the other side of the island.

Medium volume body, with robust acidity that adds nerve and duration. Green apple and citrus fruits such as lemon, lime, citron lead while slightly floral elements and more intense mineral character follows. The pleasant lemony aftertaste will remain in the mouth for long.
