Notes from Eklektikon:
"Manolis Garalis is a third generation wine grower. With an ambition to see his high quality organic grapes turned into first class wine, he launched his own winery in 2006 and released his first wines in 2007. He cultivates Lemnos island’s Limnio and Muscat of Alexandria, organically (certified), in 5 hectares of sulphuric volcanic soil.
Limnio is the oldest referenced grape in the world, as mentioned by Aristotle, Homer and other ancient Greek philosophers as “Limnia Ampelos”, and has been on the island for thousands of years. Muscat of Alexandria has become the main grape since the 1920’s, when brought by Lemnian immigrants from Egypt.
Lemnos is a volcanic island, and Garalis’ approach is “hands-off” without any addition of yeasts or other additives, to express this unique terroir in its pure form.
Terra Roza is the natural ode to the rosé tradition of the volcanic Lemnos island, where must from the red Limnio grape is only a splash, in a blend with the island’s main grape, the white Muscat of Alexandria.
