Using 100% Xinomavro grape variety from the Semi-mountainous, linear vineyards in the Naoussa region. The climate is continental, with cold winters and fairly hot summers with cool nights.

The optimum moment for grape harvesting is determined based on phenolic and technical maturation, upon which grapes are immediately taken to the winery. After light destemming and crushing, the juice sits on its lees for around 30 hours, with occasional plunging. As soon as the juice has obtained the desired colour, it is separated from the pomace, which is lightly pressed. The must is then stirred and immediately inoculated. Fermentation is arrested by chilling at approximately 10 grams of sugar per litre. Temperature during fermentation never exceeds 140C.

Soft Rosey pink colour, floral and red-fruit aromatics redolent with cherry and strawberry. Stands out for its subtle, balanced taste and satisfying aftertaste cause the wine to pair with white meat, pasta, sweetish sauces, tomato-sauce dishes. An excellent match with most Greek-cuisine dishes try it also with Chinese cuisine – it will pleasantly surprise you.
