Ios Winery Rematies Cyclades 2021

Intense aromas of orange blossom and wild herbs
combined with stone fruits, well textured with a long
mineral and saline aftertaste.
Producer Note
Inspired by working with the legendary Haridimos Hatzidakis on neighbouring Santorini,
brothers Alex and Angelos Delis established this tiny micro-winery in 2015. Located on
the island of Ios, the vineyard is planted with suitable Aegean grapes such as
Monemvasia and Assyrtiko, on soils which are mainly schist, imparting incredible
minerality to the wines. The wines are made as ‘naturally as possible’, in a gravity-fed
winery using only minimal sulphur at bottling. They make miniscule amounts of wine;
normally the only place you can try their wines is on Ios.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a hillside vineyard, 800 metres north of the winery, which is
protected from the northerly winds. The eight year old vines have been orientated to
maximise exposure to the sun. Trained using a unique bilateral cordon system
developed by their father, the vines are low to the ground, protecting from the very
windy conditions of the Cyclades region. The vineyard is characterised by its terraces,
which make it difficult to use machinery, therefore cultivation is by hand. The soil in the
vineyards is rocky schist, imparting distinctive mineral flavours to the wine; it is also high
in clay content which retains moisture, nourishing the vines through the hot, dry
summer. Rainfall is scarce on Ios, with only double the rainfall of the Sahara desert, and
as a result, yields are low and the resulting wines are rich in flavour. Following a
philosophy of natural viticulture, chemical pesticides and fertilisers are not used in the
vineyards. The practices used are close to organic, with a copper-sulphur solution
being sprayed as a preventative measure following rain. Manual harvesting takes
place during the cooler hours from dawn until 10am.
Winemaking
This wine was vinified with minimal intervention in a gravity-fed winery. The selected
grapes were transferred via conveyor belt to the destemmer and then gently pressed in
the pneumatic press. The must flowed by gravity into the tank where it was chilled and
clarified. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit and
characteristics of the terroir. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was chilled in
tank at 10°C for five to six months to clarify and stabilise the wine. This wine was made
in tiny quantities, only 1,320 bottles were produced.
