Wine maker’s note
A fine dessert wine from the sun-dried grapes Assyrtiko and Aidani of Santorini. The grapes are spread on terraces under the sun for 6 – 8 days before pressing, fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
This classic dessert wine bears a deep orange-red color with brown tints. The nose is complex, ranging from sweet spices like cinnamon and cloves towards dried fruits such as apricots and raisins. Prolonged maturation of six years in oak barrels, delivers a mellow, velvety character, while balances the kicking acidity and reveals notes of honey and lemon.
Round, velvet and rich texture in taste with a remarkable balance between honey and lemon notes. Best served at 12 oC. Alone as an aperitif or enjoy with light desserts made of cream with dried nuts or sweet spices.
