  • A complex and refreshing rose from three Greek varieties, it shows elegant notes of tangerine, strawberry, and raspberry and a subtle hint of tomato, one of the unique aromas of Xinomavro. It is crisp and fruity with a long, refreshing finish. 2022 saw rain during the vegetative season, which has become increasingly frequent over the past decade. Heavy rains during late August accompanied lower temperatures, resulting in a more classic, refined, old-school fruit profile. It provided a challenge during vinification, but the results are definitely worth it.

Each vineyard plot was vinified separately. The grapes were chilled to 5°C and then carefully sorted and gently pressed in a pneumatic press, with almost 30% remaining as whole clusters. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The wine spent two to four months in stainless steel on its fine lees to retain the purity of fruit and the distinctive characteristics of the indigenous Greek varieties.

The grapes come from various specially selected vineyards across Northern Greece, particularly from cool-climate regions, where the Mediterranean climate is tempered by strong continental influences. Diurnal temperature differences allow the grapes to build complex flavours while retaining refreshing natural acidity. The vines are trained using various methods, which have been tailored to suit the vine's and terroir's variety and vigour; however, most are Double Cordon to keep yields low and concentrate the flavours in the fruit. Most vineyards are cultivated following organic principles, although they are not certified, and all grapes are hand-harvested in the cool of the morning to retain freshness.
