Thea Mantinia 2016 Seméli

This wine is gold in more ways than one – as well as its beautiful golden hue, it was awarded a gold medal at 2017's Decanter World Wine Awards. Semeli is a superb white wine, with a combination of stone fruit, floral aromas and refreshing minerality. It’s left to age for six months, which results in a complex, rich taste, making it a great wine to drink by itself, but one that also pairs well with creamy pasta dishes. Produced in a vineyard in Nemea – an ancient site in the north-eastern part of the Peloponnese – it was bought bang up to date with a state of the art winery built in 2003, blending the old traditions with new techniques to wonderful affect.
