  • The delicate fragrance slowly evolves to unveil its fruity essence, with hints of ripe peach, aromatic bergamot, zesty lemon, tangy citrus, succulent pear, and delicate white floral notes, all enhanced by creamy undertones. The wine is opulent and full-bodied, with the taste mirroring the complex aroma and a revitalizing citrus nuance that lingers on the finish.

Vinification took place separately for each variety. The grapes were carefully selected, destemmed, and crushed before the free-run must underwent cold skin-contact maceration for six hours. Controlled fermentation occurred at 14°C, with bâtonnage of the fine lees twice a week. The three wines were deftly blended and matured in stainless steel tanks for 10 months, during which bâtonnage took place twice weekly for three months, reduced to once a fortnight for seven months, imbuing the wine with a lovely texture.

Delicate notes of peach, bergamot, lemon, citrus, pear, and white flowers are complemented by buttery overtones. The palate is textured and rich, with the flavours echoed from the nose and a refreshing, zesty finish.

Winery

The grapes are sourced from Plataea, a small village near the Kitheronas Mountain in Central Greece. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 250 to 320 metres elevation. During the autumn and winter, cool air masses blow down from the mountains, carrying dew, which refreshes the vineyard with crucial humidity. Cold winters, hot summers, and long, dry autumns combine with long periods of sunshine to enable the grapes to reach excellent maturity and complexity. This wine is a blend of native varieties Savatiano, Assyrtiko, and Aidani, which are suited to the hot, dry climate as they have good drought-resistant properties. Yields are controlled meticulously, and all viticultural practices are conducted manually. The older vines are established and have developed deep root systems, so, during the hot summers, the roots can reach the water reserves and essential nutrients. Harvest takes place at night, contributing to preserving varietal aromas and natural acidity.
