Lefteris GLINAVOS Demi-Sec

Sweet citrus fruits, coconut and almond flakes

A white natural sparkling wine which is an excellent choice for all special occasions. Lively, youthful, elegant with hints of fine spices, which is also produced by the Debina grape variety following the traditional method of Champagne. The grapes are handpicked and selectively chosen and only the healthy grapes are gently pressed to collect the “free run”.

The long fermentation in the bottle at ideal temperature and humidity give delicacy and refinement in the aromas and flavours, rich foam and bubbles throughout. By adding the liqueur de dosage, before the final bottling, transforms it into a demi-sec fine sparkling wine.

Before the final bottling, the liquer de dosage (a mixture of sugar, yeast and still sparkling wine) is added which transforms it into a demi-sec type with 32gr/ltr amount of sugar.
