Tasting Notes

Tesseris Limnes 2020 from Kir Yiannis estate has a pale yellow colour with greenish hues.

On the nose it’s aromatic, sapid and mineral. The bouquet opens with white flowers, fresh almond and a touch of mint. There is bergamot candied peel and a tropical note of unripe mango.

In the mouth it’s round with anice integrated freshness. On the palate there are citrus notes again and white flowers.

The finish is long.

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.

Wine grape

Gewürztraminer is a fragrant white wine grape variety that performs best in cooler climates. It is often referred to as Gewürz in English, and it is written Gewurztraminer in English and French. Gewürztraminer is a white wine grape with a pink to red skin color, as opposed to the blue to black-skinned varieties that are generally referred to as “red wine grapes.” The grape has a high natural sugar content, and the wines are white and off-dry, with a flamboyant lychee bouquet. Lychees and Gewürztraminer have the same fragrance compounds. Roses, passion fruit, and floral notes can be found in dry Gewürztraminers. It’s not rare to see any spritz.
