Our Sommelier Suggests
Rosé wine tastes like summer in a glass, outshining every other varietal this time of year. Rosé fever is at its peak as the solstice nears, bringing the first days of summer. The price point of pink wine is substantially lower than other wines, though it is considered trendier and highly fashionable. Lemnos is a Greek island serenely floating in the northern part of the Aegean Sea. In fact, the volcanic island of Lemnos is actually the mythic location of the forge of Hephaestus, god of blacksmiths, sculptors, artisans, metallurgy and fire. Long famous for its indigenous red wine grape variety Limnio (also spelled Lemnio), Lemnos is now gathering more attention for its Muscat of Lemnos which produces white dessert wine that shows outstanding varietal character. Lemnian viticulture dates back to the Trojan War era; Achaeans quenched their thirst by drinking Lemnian wine! To keep up with the changing tastes of consumers, Lemnians produce Lemnio rosé wine. Lemnio rosé wine is a blend of Lemnio and Muscat. This wine with its picture-perfect blush colour and pink charm has turned into gold and it has become synonymous with the Lemnian pelagic lifestyle. Lemnio rosé wine is a massive hit and in vogue this season! Lemnio rosé wine is floral on the nose with very distinctive notes of rose petals; it offers flavours of fresh-cut strawberries, finishing with a hint of fresh mint. This wine makes an excellent pairing at a summer party hovering with friends over spinach strawberry salad with oregano flowers dressed with strawberry vinaigrette. For oenophiles this combination is a summer treat. Sit back and enjoy it, its charm lies in its quality.
