Porto Carras Chateau Le Grand Blanc 2016


This is an age restricted product for persons aged 18 and over.

The wine is made from the oldest Malagousia, Assyrtiko and Limnio vines from the original vineyards of Domaine Porto Carras, creating a true expression of the local terroir. These are mostly located at 200-300 metres above the sparkling Mediterranean sea where the breezes and dry climate create perfect conditions for organic viticulture. The vineyards yield at a tiny 800 kilos per hectare, creating wines of intensity and structure.

The white grapes Assyrtiko and Malagousia have a period of skin contact at low  temperatures before the start of fermentation while the red variety Limnio is taken off skins straight away. Fermentation is in stainless steel before transfer to oak barrels for a year’s ageing on lees with occasional batonnage.
