Robola

This grape is Western Greece’s answer to Santorini’s Assyrtiko. Grown mostly on limestone areas at its home on the island of Kefalonia, it maintains a medium body and elevated acidity. Lemon zest, citrus notes are characteristic of this varietal. The finish can be long and persistent. In its youth, it will remind us of a Chablis, or even a Sauvignon Blanc (New World style). As it ages it moves into Riesling flavor profile territory (especially the oaked renditions).
