The Chardonnay grapes are cultivated by Domaine Gioulis in the northern Peloponnese mountains at a 1000m altitude near the village of Klimenti. The soil is clay-limestone nand the vineyard has a northern orientation.
Traditional white wine vinification. Clarification is done by static sedimentation. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. Each variety is vinified separately. The blending of the varieties takes place after the fermentation.

- Tasting Notes:
The 2019 Sofos white is an organic 80/20 blend of Moschofilero and Chardonnay, unoaked, nicely dry and coming in at 13.1% alcohol. It's fresh, appealingly aromatic and elegant. Bright, light and easy, it has a summer-like feel to it. It finishes with some crispness, and it is pretty tasty too. I'm not sure this has either the structure or depth to age, but it doesn't feel thin and it has some tension on the juicy finish. It's a great summer choice for drinking on its own. Drink it young for best results. It is worth leaning up today.Mark Sguires - 'Robert Parker Wine Advocate'
Pale khaki color. Aromas of ripe apricot, honey, cantaloupe, and white peppercorn with a satiny, tangy, dryish light body and a smooth, compelling, medium-length citron, lemon spritz, and almond finish. A delicious warm-weather white that will pair like a dream with shellfish; refreshing, mineral-focused, and effortlessly drinkable.Tastings.com
This vivacious white is a beach pour with class. Fresh lemon zest and floral aromas and a combination of white fruit, minerals and citrus on the palate are lively and light, but the wine has some weight behind it.Wine Enthusiast
"The white Sofos has a pale gold colour and a delicate nose with aromas of rosebud and white flowers, while in the palate it has freshness, medium body and fruity flavours such as pear, white peach and fresh melon. It is a white wine of pleasure which has the aromatic typicity of the indigenous Moschofilero combined with the body and the crisp acidity of a fresh Chardonnay.""Konstantinos Lazarakis"
