Separate vinification of each variety. Fermentation of both the Malagousia and Assyrtiko in small tanks at low temperatures. Maturation with the wine lees for about 3 months. The Chardonnay ferments in new 225-litre barrels and is left to mature for 6 to 7 months. Final mixing and storing in stainless tanks for 3 weeks.
Straw yellow colour with green hues. Expressive nose with complex aromas and notes of peach, white flowers, basil and thyme. Balanced, fruity palate with cool acidity. The finish has a long “vanilla” after-taste.
Enjoyable both newly bottled and suitable for ageing up to three years.
