Preknadi (synonyms are Priknadi, Prekna, Prekniariko) was cultivated extensively in the vineyards of the Naoussa region five to six decades ago. The zone was invaded by phylloxera in the 60’s and the majority of Preknadi plantings were lost. Growers and winemakers have only very recently started to concentrate their efforts once again on the variety. The name Preknadi stems from the Greek word “prekniaris”, which means “freckle face”: The skin of the grape is dotted with spots.
Stone fruit, pear, banana, apricot, aromatic. Medium bodied with balanced acidity, solid expression of fruit on the mid-palate, followed by a lovely finish that lingers around for a surprisingly long time.
