Winemaker's Note

The 2012 Samaropetra is a wine with a bright yellow-green color. The nose is dominated by the intense fruity character of Sauvignon Blanc, displaying aromas of tropical fruits and grapefruit. On the palate, the Roditis offers a rich mouthfeel, while the refreshing acidity and the floral finish create a characterful yet elegant wine.

We cold soak the Sauvignon Blanc entirely and partly the Roditis coming from the irrigated vineyards. Thus we maximize the extraction of aroma precursors into the must. Fermentation takes place at temperature ranges from 16 to 18°C in stainless steel tanks except for about 10% of the low-canopy Roditis that ferments in new oak at 20°C. After fermentation an enzyme-aided batonnage on the lees shapes the final fatty character.
