Intense but refined muscat aromas of jasmine, white peach and apricot, typical of a high-quality Malagousia, are pleasantly balanced by the freshness of a mountainous Roditis adding a crispy acidity and zest to the final blend. The lingering fruity aftertaste underpins the intense flavor and highlights a wine with an enchanting character.
Roditis 80%, Malagousia 20%
3-5 months in stainless steel tanks
Selected vineyards from Agios Panteleimon, Amyndeon
The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon, in the Amyndeon Appelation in North- western Greece. The vineyard’s mean yield does not exceed 40 hl/he. 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 characterised by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighbouring lakes contribute to the creation of a mild continental climate.
After a period of cold soak, which increases the extraction of more intense aromas from the skin of the grapes, the must is clarified through static debourbage, before it is inoculated with selected yeasts demonstrating the aromatic character of the grapes. Batonnage is applied in inox tanks for a period of 3-5 months, with the aim to add volume and complexity to the wine.
