A bright, uplifting wine, with delicate fruit aromas followed by a generous and spicy mouthfeel with hints of liquorice and pine and a refreshing herbal, saline finish.


Producer Note
Idaia Winery is located in Venerato, a village in the heart of the vineyards of the Malevizi district, which is part of the Dafnes appellation area. Idaia is a family company, specialising in producing wines from indigenous grapes, which reflect a true sense of place. Oenologists Vasilis Laderos and Calliope Volitaki use their extensive knowledge, experience and passion to create these superb wines with strong personalities. We are delighted to include these wines in our portfolio, they are truly expressive of the terroir of Crete.


Vineyard
The indigenous variety of Thrapshathiri (pronounced Thra-psa-THEE-ree) is grown in the Dafnes region, in vineyards located at an altitude of 400 to 500 metres above sea level. The calcium-rich, clayish soil, the very low yielding vines and the distinctive microclimate, which is formed by the cool Aegean summer breeze, combine to create a unique terroir for viticulture and wine production.


Winemaking
The winemaking philosophy is to create wines which showcase the quality of the indigenous varieties. Following a thorough inspection at the winery, the grapes were preserved for 24 hours at very low temperatures. The grapes were destemmed, then a cryo-maceration took place for approximately six hours. The free-run juice was removed without having been pressed. After a cold settling, the wine was fermented with carefully selected yeasts which highlight the aromatic characters of this variety. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 12 days at temperatures that
did not exceed 16°C, maintaining the purity of fruit in the final wine.


Tasting Note
A bright, uplifting wine, with delicate fruit aromas which follow through to a wellbalanced palate with a pleasantly crisp finish.


Serving Suggestion
The perfect accompaniment to salads, seafood and grilled fish dishes.
