Made from Assyrtiko grape, it comes from the vineyard of Pyrgos
After undergoing the 12-hour skin contact process, the grape must is placed in small 1.000 litre Stan steel tanks and in new 225lt French and American oak barrels and acacia barrels.
The wild yeast strains that prevail are the ones which eventually determine the wine’s character.
At the end of the fermentation process, the winemaker choose only those tanks and barrels which, according to their expertise, raise the Assyrtiko to new levels of enjoyment.
A special feature of most Assytiko from Santorini is that despite their white color they behave like red wines! Keep the wine for 2-3 years under proper cellar conditions and temperature 12o-14?C and it will undergo profound changes. Its mineral dimension will subside while the fruity and honey flavours will envelop its body.
