The grapes used for Estate Argyros Assyrtiko are from a small plot of 200+ year-old vines. Yields are extremely low. The ungrafted vines are basket pruned, and dry farmed. Grapes are hand-picked in August.
After a thorough selection, the grapes undergo a brief pneumatic pressing to obtain a gentle extraction of the juice. After fermentation, 5% of the wine is aged in 2nd and 3rd use 500L French oak barrels for 6 months, with periodic battonage.
