Idaia Winery Ocean Thrapshathiri Dafnes 2021

savoury liquorice and pine and a refreshing saline, mineral finish.
Producer Note

Idaia Winery is a boutique family-run winery situated in the Venerato, a charming
village in the heart of the vineyards of the Malevizi district. Owned by husband and wife
oenologists Vasilis Laderos and Calliope Volitaki, they specialise in producing wines
from indigenous varieties and use their extensive knowledge, experience and passion
to create these superb wines with strong personalities. Showcasing varietals such as
Vidiano and Vilana, these crisp, dry mouth-watering whites are truly expressive of the
terroir of Crete.
The indigenous variety of Thrapshathiri (pronounced Thrap-sah-THEE-ree) is grown in the
Dafnes region, in vineyards located at an altitude of 400 to 500 metres above sea level.
At this elevation, the cool Aegean summer breezes refresh the vines during the summer,
when temperatures can reach 35°C. The cooler nights can drop to 15°C and this
diurnal temperature difference retains natural acidity in the grapes, balancing this rich
and intensely aromatic variety. The calcium-rich, clayish soils offer good nutrients and
excellent water retention to nourish the vines through the hot, dry summers. The lowyielding vines are trained according to the Royat method. The soils, very low yielding
vines and the distinctive microclimate, combine to create a unique terroir in which the
Thrapshathiri variety thrives.
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
cold 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 at temperatures of 15°C, maintaining
the purity of fruit in the resulting wine.
Tasting Note
A bright, uplifting wine, with delicate fruit aromas followed by a rich and charming
palate beautifully balanced by a crisp finish.
