A modern take on a Greek classic. This is an intriguing and delicately perfumed blend of the Roditis and Moschofilero grapes from the Peloponnese peninsula. A spicy, textural combination of refreshing acidity and weighty balance; a revelation.
Thiasos is made by one of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution- Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, using grapes from Nemea in the northeastern area of the Peloponnese peninsula. The Thiasos was the retinue of Dionysos, the Greek god of wine. It consisted of Maenads and Satyrs. The Maenads were mythical nymphs (females) and the Satyrs were half human half horse.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks to create a fresh, aromatic wine.
The balance of weight and spiciness lends itself to oily fish, rich dressed salads and delicate rice dishes.
Roditis 85%, Moschofilero 15%
