Kydonitsa is a white wine produced by Domaine Nickolaou in Nemea, Greece. It is made from pure Kydonitsa grapes grown organically in a 6-year-old vineyard a few kilometres from Douramani with a yield of about 800 kg/hectare. No pesticides or fertilisers other than Bordeaux mixture, sulphur and organic mulch are used. The grapes for this wine are harvested by hand once they have reached the desired phenolic and alcoholic maturity. They are cooled to 4°C and subjected to cold skin contact extraction at 8°C for 10 hours. Using only the flower, they undergo the alcoholic fermentation process with indigenous yeasts, which takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 17°C in order to enhance the full bouquet of the variety. In line with the principles of organic farming, only the minimum necessary amount of sulphur dioxide is added. Matured in stainless steel for 6 months. We like Kydonitsa because it is a wine made from a rare grape, in the mouth it is fresh but buttery, citrusy and enveloping, try it with chicken cacciatore.

Nemea, Greece

Domaine Nikolaou was founded in 1984 following the family tradition dating back to 1936. The air that comes down from the mountains and the humidity of the legendary Asopos river define a unique microclimate for the vineyards. There are 14 hectares under certified organic cultivation, almost all with indigenous grape varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Kydonitsa, Asyrtiko, Moschofilero; with the exception of an area dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. In the winery, fermentation is temperature-controlled but with indigenous yeasts, and ageing takes place in steel and in wood.
