From selected vineyards of the Domokos plateau, the varieties Assyrtiko and Sauvignon Blanc offer us a wine full of complex exotic and citrus fruit aroma.
Gentle and mild, a well balanced wine which leaves behind a great residual taste. Enjoy it at 10-12°C.
Vineyard: Private Vineyard of 220 hectares at the Gerakli Slopes in 400m altitude with 8% inclination and northwest orientation.
Environmental conditions: A very important climatic feature of the area is the beneficial rainfalls during the winter and the spring, while the warm summer with the dry and cool nights result in temperature variations up to 15°C. As a result the plants work feverishly, the sap circulates through the plant ensuring that way the rich fragrance, the phenolic maturity and the intense flavor of the wine.
Vinification process: Careful grape selection, pre-fermentation infusion (Skin contact) at the 10-12°C (for about 6 hours), very low pressure of the must (juice, skins and seeds) at the press, juice refrigeration (12-15°C) for about 12 hours and mud extraction of the juice. Follows the alcoholic fermentation at controlled conditions in anoxidizable, refrigerated tanks.
Features: Bright yellow color, with dominant notes of blossoms and citrus fruits. Subtle and thin finish with balanced acidity and aromatic aftertaste of bergamot zest.
