PALIA ARMAKIA ROBOLLA NATURAL 2022 – PETRAKOPOULOS WINERYRobola as bio and natural as it gets
This is definitely one wine that will never pass unnoticed and will win again and again awards in competitions around the world. It is organic and natural with no added sulphites. The amazing grapes, which are cultivated all the way according to the principles of organic farming, with no interventions in the field, come from a great pre-phylloxera vineyard at Thiramonas, Cephalonia. The beautiful Ionian island of Cephalonia, with its superb natural environment and wonderful coastline, during the last years has been redefining its wine production and is graciously returning to the glory of bygone eras when it was famous for its wine production all over the world. Robola, a protagonist in this amazing comeback, seems to have the potential to win the throne from Assyrtiko as Greece’s top wine for exports in the future. At Petrakopoulos Winery experimenting with local varieties is a fulltime job and the result is wines that represent the local terroir in a unique way. Palia Armakia is a limited production wine and its rare bottles sell very fast each year, so you will have to watch out for a wine that it is often hard to get. The colour in the glass is pale lemon, with medium body, a nose full of aromas of lemon, lime and green apple and a very expressive acidity with intense mineral character and a sense of wet stone. Its perfect aftertaste is very satisfying and remains in your mouth long after you had the chance to try this exquisite wine.
