Dry White Wine
Perpetuus that means continuous, everlasting, perpetual. In 2004, the NICO LAZARIDI Winery, through its continuous quest of new tasting experiences and after a planning of many years and incessant vinifications in small individual batches, created two new products: a white and a red wine named Perpetuus.
The single-variety wine Perpetuus white from Semillon, its aging in new acacia barrels, along with the specific processing method make it a unique wine with excellent structure and stability in time.
Perpetuus White 2018 has won the golden medal at the 26th MUNDUS VINI International Wine Competition! NICO LAZARIDI’s premium white wine won this high distinction among 7,500 wines from all around the world.
In the spring tasting of the prestigious wine competition MUNDUS VINI, 268 judges from 54 countries singled out and highly rated Perpetuus White. In total, the jury awarded this year 43 Grand Gold, 1,546 Gold and 1,406 Silver medals.
