Wine maker’s notes
Judges’ Selection Medal, best Greek white wine, TEXSOM International Wine Awards (2017)
Source of grapes: Grapes are sourced mostly from old vineyards in different parts of the island. The biggest percentage of them comes from Pyrgos, Exo Gonia, Megalochori and partly comes from Akrotiri, Emporio, and Fira.
Winemaking: Classic white vinification, with a part of cold soak depending on the quality of each vintage. The different varieties and the different villages are fermenting on separate steel tanks under controlled temperatures. The final blend is decided regarding the profile of each vintage and matures on lees for at least 5 months.
Description: Elegant nose dominated by the aromas of fruits (stone fruits, citrus fruits) and stony minerality (wet sea rocks). Notes of flowers like jasmine and herbal like mint derived from the percentage of Athiri-Aidani giving in this way many layers of flavor. Complex, elegant and vivid on the palate with depth of fruit, freshness, and density.
Serving and food pairing: Served at 9-11C being a delicious match with fish tartar, briney “dolmades” with egg-lemon sauce, roasted crawfish, shrimps or grilled octopus, fried fish, and seafood delicacies.
