Malagousia is a light-skinned white wine grape variety indigenous to the Macedonia wine region of northern Greece. It was almost extinct vine rediscovered by Professor Vassilis Logothetis in the middle of the 1970s and is becoming increasingly popular. The grape gives wines that are rich and full-bodied with relatively low acidity. The grape variety is an early ripening vine susceptible to botrytis and downy mildew, but resistant to drought, and it produces full-bodied, fragrant white wines with peach and apricot aromas and a light muscat note. It can be vinified dry or sweet as the sweet wines are very rare and south after, or with or without oak ageing. The Malagousia grape is experiencing a renaissance at the moment as being planted all over Greece with the best expressions found in Macedonia and Attica wine regions.
