Tasting Note

This classic dessert wine bears a deep orange-red color with brown tints. The nose is complex, ranging from sweet spices like cinnamon and cloves towards dried fruits such as apricots, prunes and raisins. Prolonged maturation of three years in oak barrels, delivers a mellow, velvety character, while balances the kicking acidity and reveals notes of honey and lemon. Long ageing potential.

    “This dessert wine is a blend of 85% Assyrtiko and 15% Aidani that was sun-dried for ten days. Syrupy and concentrated, it possesses 280 grams of residual sugar and a personality of raisins, dried figs, prunes, molasses, maple syrup and buckwheat honey. There is a long finale with just enough acidity to provide symmetry”. (ES)
