Tasting Note

A spondee to the most delicate native variety of Crete. Clear colour, with slightly greenish reflections. Elegant scent, reminding of the Cretan countryside aromas in autumn. Balanced flavour, determined by citrus fruit, as they release a pleasant acidity for the end.

    • Skin contact maceration for 7 hours at 8 °C
    • Fermentation in stainless steel tanks with cooling jacket at 15-17°C
    • During fermentation, lees stirring (bâtonnage) takes place to keep the lees in contact with the wine and extract flavour, aroma, and texture.
