Serving Size 750ml

The citrus aromas of the Assyrtiko grapes combined with the floral aromas of the acacia wood and the vanilla of the oak result to a wine with a highly complex aromatic profile.

Minerality and well-balanced acidity give depth and longevity.

This white wine will continue to evolve for 2-5 years, as the mineral notes soften the palate will develop more nuanced flavors of fruit and honey.

A classic pairing for seafood, fatty fish, as well as poultry and even lamb.

Description

Assyrtiko 100%.

50% Stainless steel tanks, 20% Acacia, 20% French barrique, 10% American barrique

The carefully selected matured and qualitative Assyrtiko comes exclusively from the vineyard of Pyrgos, justifying its big aromatic character.

After undergoing the 12-hour skin contact process at around 10οC, the grape must is placed in small 1.000 litre INOX tanks and in new 225lt French and American oak barrels and acacia barrels. The temperature is then allowed to rise naturally, without any further involvement. From that point on, modern technology passes the baton to traditional winemaking.

The wild yeast strains that prevail are the ones which eventually determine the wine’s character.

In every tank and barrel something different occurs. After the end of the fermentation, we choose only those tanks and barrels which, according to our expertise, raise the Assyrtiko to new levels of enjoyment.
