Ktima Biblia Chora Areti White 2017 is produced from the Assyrtiko varietal cultivated on the Biblia Chora estate, near Ambelia, where the soil is limestone and clay.
On the nose-bright citrus notes (lemon/lime) with touch of white flowers and saline quality. On the palate-high tone acidity, evident stony minerality with concentrated citrus and red orchard fruit, a dry, crisp wine that shows depth and a long complex finish. Potential for ageing is 10 years.
Rich, exceptional structure, with a good balance of alcohol and acidity, and a long finish.

The estate’s own vineyards have grown to encompass about 48 hectares, at an altitude of 380 metres. The regional Mediterranean climate is marked by mild winters and cool summers, as it is influenced by the mass of Mt Pangeon and the sea breeze blowing from the Aegean. The sizeable difference between daytime and night-time temperatures is advantageous in allowing the grapes to mature slowly. Although the soil is a rocky mix of limestone and clay and relatively barren, it offers good drainage. The vines are cultivated according to organic farming standards, with great respect for the environment, ie, the flora and fauna of the area and for human life. Nowadays, Ktima Biblia Chora cultivates the Greek varietals of Assyrtiko, Agiorgitiko and Vidiano, as well as the foreign Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Gewürztraminer, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
