Domaine Karanika Brut Cuvee Speciale Xinomavro is a wonderful and refreshing sparkling wine from the Domaine Karanika. The Domaine was founded by husband & wife team Laurens Hartman and Annette van Kampen. Although Laurens’ mother is Greek, both he and Annette had lived all their lives in the Netherlands. In fact they came mighty close to moving to Australia, however, it was Laurens’ heritage and the dynamic Xinomavro grape which captured their imagination and ultimately led to their move to Greece. More specifically, the alluvial plateau of Amyndeon in the north-western mountainous part of the country.
Laurens & Annette farm their vineyards organically and are utilising bio-dynamic practices. They work with the growers to ensure they are obtaining top-quality, organically grown grapes.
Domaine Karanika Brut Cuvee Speciale Xinomavro has a rich yeasty and fruity nose with aromas of strawberry. Mouthfilling creamy mouse with everlasting tiny bubbles in perfect contrast with its refreshing acidity. A balanced, cold climate type of sparkling wine with a considerable length on the finish.
