The fruit underwent strict selection in the vineyard and again in the cellar. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and the free-run must was cold macerated with skin contact for six hours. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 14°C in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit. The wine was rested on its fine lees, with bâtonnage adding texture and complexity for three months.

Winery

The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard called Plataies, located in Plataea, a small village at the foot of the Kitheronas Mountain, in Central Greece. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 250 to 320 metres elevation and during the autumn and winter months 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. The Savatiano variety is suited to the hot, dry climate as it has excellent drought-resistant properties. The grapes for this wine come from old vines of 40 to 60 years, which are pruned according to the traditional goblet style and produce low yields of concentrated fruit.
