Winemaker's Note

On the nose the wine displays aromas of white fruits and flowers. On the palate, the citrus acidity balances with the alcohol and the round mouthfeel of the wine and finishes with a lingering aftertaste.

The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon, in the Amyndeon Appellation in Northwestern Greece. The soil is sandy and poor, thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold
winters and warm summers, while the four neighboring lakes contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate. Assyrtiko is produced from young vines, 8-10 years old.

The grapes are cold soaked in order to maximize the extraction of aroma precursors into the must. Following racking, the must is inoculated with selected yeasts. After the end of the fermentation, the wine matures for a period of 4-5 months on fine lees, thus gaining more volume and complexity
