Wine maker’s notes
Very limited production from 100% Assyrtiko grapes organically grown in the volcanic vineyard of Santorini.
Classic white vinification. Destemming, skin contact for 6 hours at low temperature 5-6°C. Gentle pneumatic press. Fermentation temperature at 16-17 °C that lasted 20 days. Use of organic yeast and minimum use of added sulfites. Conservation in stainless steel tanks. Stabilization, filtering, and bottling.
Elegant aromas of jasmine coexist with hints of lemon, citrus with notes of white flowers on the background. Refreshing acidity in the palate, in harmony with a touch of saltiness and minerality. A complex wine that will further evolve within the next 5 years.
Best served at 8-10°C with fresh salads, seafood, white meat, and pasta. Ideal for vegetarians and vegans.
