Biblia Chora Ovilos Semillion/Assyrtiko 2019
Winner Gold Medal in Decanter Wine Awards 2020
The Ovilos Barrell Fermented Semillon Assyrtiko Blend from Biblia Chora is often described as a Greek version of a white Graves. It's got a light yellow colour with a green hue, enticing aromas of peach and vanilla with a burst of fresh grapefruit and minerals. Ovilos white wine has wonderful weight and added texture on the palate with notable minerality. Ovilos from Biblia Chora is superb when served with risottos or creamy pasta dishes.
