The Indigenous Grapes 希臘的原生葡萄品種

July 31, 2017

◆ Red Grape Varieties 紅葡萄品種 ◆

 

 

❖ Agiorghitiko 

 

Most widely planted red variety in the country but mainly in Nemea, Peloponnese. Its versatility leads to the production of many different styles of wine, ranging from fresh aromatic reds to extraordinary aged reds. The wines it produces are known for their high level of fruitiness, coloring, great complexity but tend to lack some acidity.

 

最廣泛種植的紅葡萄品種,主要散佈於Nemea。很高的可塑性,能釀造出 許多不同風格的葡萄酒,從新鮮芳香到陳年的酒都有。以豐富色澤、複雜香氣聞名,但往往缺乏一些酸度。

❖ Mavrodaphne

 

Literally means "black laurel". It is mainly found in Achaia and Ilia as well as the Ionian Islands. Often blended with Korinthiaki grape to produce fortified dessert wine known as Mavrodaphne, which presents characters of caramel, chocolate, coffee, raisins and plums.

 

Mavrodaphne可解作「黑月桂樹」。它主要生長在Achaia和Ilia以及Ionian島,通常與Korinthiaki葡萄混釀出Mavrodaphne強化甜酒,呈現出焦糖、巧克力、咖啡、葡萄乾和李子的特質。

❖ Mavro Kalavritino

 

The rare variety is mainly grown in the mountains of Egialia and in Kalavrita in the north-west of the Peloponnese. Late ripening, susceptible to Botrytis but resistant to mildew. It is often used to blend with other varieties and produces tannic red wines often with aromas of cherries, spices and violets.

 

罕見的品種,主要生長在Egialia山脈和Peloponnese西北部的Kalavrita。晚熟、易受灰黴菌侵害,但能抵抗白粉病。通常用於混釀,生產出具櫻桃、香料、紫羅蘭香氣、單寧豐富的紅酒。

❖ Xinomavro

 

Predominant in Macedonia, Xinomavro is known for its superb aging potential and their rich tannic character. Their complex aromas combine such red fruits as gooseberry with hints of olives, spices and dried tomatoes.

 

普遍種植於Macedonia,以其極佳陳年潛力及其豐富單寧著稱。優良的香氣複雜度,如紅莓、醋栗、橄欖、香料和乾番茄等芳香。

 

◆ White Grape Varieties 白葡萄品種 ◆

 

 

 Assyrtiko 

 

One of Greece’s finest white varieties which was originated from the island of Santorini. It has natural high acidity that yields a bone-dry wine with citrus aromas along with earthy, mineral aftertaste. It has been planted throughout Greece in recent decades where it expresses a milder and more fruity character. It is also used in the production of unique sweet VINSANTO, well known since Byzantine times.

 

源於聖托里尼島,是希臘最優秀的白葡萄品種之一。它擁有天然高酸度,生產出極為乾身的葡萄酒,帶柑橘芳香、泥土、礦物質的餘韻。近年蹤跡遍及整個希臘,較溫和、果味更突出的酒款。它也用於生產從拜占庭時代起已聞名於世的甜酒VINSANTO。

 Malagousia

 

Originated in the region of Nafpaktos, Malagousia was virtually extinct until Domaine Carras began to re-plant it for producing high quality wine. It is aromatic with exotic fruits notes, citrus, jasmine and has the potential to produce elegant full bodied wines. 

 

Malagousia源於Nafpaktos地區,曾一度絕種,直到上世紀末DomaineCarras開始重新種植。它屬於芳香品種,散發著異國水果、柑橘、茉莉花等特質,有潛力生產出優雅、濃郁的酒款。

 Moschofilero

 

Aromatic variety primary in Mantinia, Peloponnese. It has a grey-colored skin and therefore produce blanc de gris in Mantinia. Its crisp character and beautiful floral aroma of roses with touch of spices makes it an ideal aperitif.

 

主要遍佈Peloponnese的芳香品種。果皮呈灰色,因此能生產出blanc degris。細緻的玫瑰花香、香料味道及的清爽的酸度,是理想的開胃酒。

 Savatiano

 

One of the most widely planted varieties in Greece but predominant in the region of Attica, where it displays excellent resistance to the drought. It has a relatively low acidity and leads to the production of elegant white wines with an aroma of citrus fruits and flowers.

 

希臘最廣泛種植的品種之一,在Attica地區佔主導地位,有極佳的抗旱能力。酸度較低,能生產出優雅、帶柑橘類水果和鮮花香氣的白酒。
