Dourakis Romeiko

This is a wine unlike anything else. It is best described as an orange de noir, meaning it is an orange-colored wine made from the red grape Romeiko. It is immensely aromatic with smells of dried herbs, nuts, and baked fruit. It has an oxidative character reminiscent of stewed persimmons and apple cider. Drink “Diaselos” with traditional Cretan wedding pilaf and boiled lamb, charcuterie, and pork dishes.
