Artemis Karamolegos Vinsanto 2007
Naturally sweet wine from sun dried grapes | 500 ml
Santorini Protected Designation of Origin (PDO Santorini)
Vintage: 2007 | Varietal Composition: Assyrtico 85%, Aidani 15%
Source of grapes: Grapes are sourced from old vines averaging 100 years of age from vineyards in the villages of Megalochori, Pyrgos, Exo Gonia and Akrotiri.
Winemaking: The grapes are left to sun-dry in a traditional way for 9 to 14 days under the hot sun of Santorini in order to evaporate the juice losing their weight and concentrate their amount of sugar, acidity levels and flavors. Fermentation follows in tanks and lasts for several days. It stops spontaneously leaving a significant amount of residual sugars. Maturation takes place in old French oak barrels of 225lt and 500lt for at least 90 months
Description: Dense and complex aromas of dried fruits, chocolate, caramel, espresso coffee and nuts. Luscious on the palate, yet not cloying with “kicking” acidity levels. Exuberant and complex lingering finish. This mahogany colored wine-elixir concentrates all the special traits of Santorini’s unique terroir.
Ageing potential: 10+ years after bottling
Serving and food pairing: Served at 7-9°C. You can enjoy it on its own after a lovely dinner. But it will be a heavenly-made pairing with chocolate desserts, crème brûlée and greek “baklava” or semolina halva. It will also greatly withstand the antithesis of serving it next to savory dishes such as Roquefort, kopanisti or matured graviera cheese, quiche lorraine or even with prosciutto and dried figs.
