Philoxenia Hospitality



Protected Geographical Indication “Crete”

Variety: Syrah 70% - Kotsifali 30%

Features: : The international grape variety Syrah is hosted in the Cretan soil and can be ideally combined with the most ancient red Cretan variety, Kotsifali, in order to give a favorable blend with rich aromas of red fruit and spices, and excellent structure.

A very successful blend from Syrah and the indigenous Cretan grape Kotsifali, which give us deep ruby colour, intense aromas and flavours of ripe fruits, black olives, sour cherry marmalade, ground pepper and sweet spices. A delicious wine with great compl.exity which evolves on the nose and palate with time. ‘Philoxenia’ is a wine that expresses its origin and shows how great the 2017 vintage was. Decant it an hour before serving.

  • Oven baked lamb with thyme and oregano
  • ‘Imam’ aubergines with tomato and herbs
  • Cold cuts platter with red Florina pepper dip
