Winemaker's Note

Bright, with a rich aromatic character aromas of strawberry and small red forest fruits compose the typically seductive character of the wine. The round acidity is refreshing, without the pungent intensity of an Amyndeon rosé, while the wine finishes with a lingering, fruity aftertaste.

Akakies is the final blend of two winemaking techniques: 90% of the must undergoes skin contact and 10% comes from the bleeding off of juice fermenting for red wine. Grapes are kept in cold rooms to achieve temperatures between 11 and 14ºC. After destemming and crushing, skin contact takes place under CO2 atmosphere to avoid oxidisation for 12 to 48 hours depending on the grape quality. After fermentation the wine is aged on lees for 3 months with 3 times per week stirring to soften the natural acidity and increase opulency.
