The Oddbins Take

Based in a region with a strong winemaking history, and recently overhauled by a company that is investing time, love and money into it, the Mediterra Winery is fighting fit and making some cracking wines from indigenous grape varieties. Made from the rarely-seen Vilana grape, this white is super crispy clean and exhibits a host of tropical and citrus fruits. Its exuberant summery fruitiness is ideal for beach barbecues. Try with BBQd red snapper.

Adam Lechemere in Food and Travel Magazine: "Fine aromas of freshcut grass and ripe citrus fruit. It is deceptively light and the palate has bright acidity and a slight tannic edge. It goes remarkably well with fried squid and aromatic aioli."
In Kounavi, a village that lies in the heart of the appellation zone of Peza, Crete, has a long history of winemaking and takes its name from the ancient wine-presses, “Kanaves”, that are found on the islands of the Archipelago. Mediterra themselves have been making wine from the island’s indigenous grape varieties since 1973.
