A Cretan variety that will be widely discussed before long; many consider it the Chardonnay of Crete. It originates from Rethymno territory and is now cultivated methodically in the region of Heraklion; it has yielded excellent results in white single variety wines, as well as in combination with other local varieties, such as Plyto, Thrapsathyri and Vilana. Interesting bouquet and a satisfying acidity. It grows in large bunches of oval grapes.
