Wine maker’s notes
All the fruit for this wine comes from the volcanic and sandy soils of Santorini. The vines are 50-60 years old and are caned pruned trained in a woven basket called “Kouloura”. The average yield is 2500-3500 kg.
All grapes are hand harvested. We select incoming grapes by hand for optimum quality and then cool them at 10°C, before they are destemmed, crushed and pressed. Part of production undergoes cold soaking to maximize aromas into the must. We transfer the free-run juice to fermentors and rack off the lees at very low temperature to achieve optimum clarity. We then proceed with alcoholic fermentation at 14-18C to achieve primary and secondary aromas. The wine is finally transferred to stainless steel tanks to gain volume and complexity by fine lees stirring for at least 3 months before bottling.
Full warm flavour thanks to its high alcohol content. Full bodied with aromatic harmony.
Perfectly paired with mildly spiced dishes, seafood, and grilled fish. Serving temperature: Served at 10-12 °C.
