  • A strong and lively nose of grapefruit, nectarine, and hints of almond blossom. This richly textured wine is very flavorsome and has superb length, balance, and plenty of finesse. Bright and long on the finish.



The grapes were destemmed, carefully sorted and then lightly crushed, before being cold soaked with skin contact. The must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and was then maintained on its fine lees or "sur lie" for two months with regular stirring, imparting a creamy texture and added complexity to the wine.

A lively nose of grapefruit, nectarine and hints of almond blossom leads to a richly textured palate, has superb length, balance and plenty of finesse. Bright and zesty on the finish.

The Malagouzia grapes come from a single vineyard site, known as "Turtles" because it is a nesting site for the local turtle population. The vineyard covers 36.35 hectares in the Amyndeon plateau. The vines are grown at an altitude of 620 to 710 meters above sea level. Planted at a density of 5,900 vines per hectare, they yield 65 hectolitres per hectare, following green harvest and selection. The soil is sandy to sandy-clay over limestone which offers the vines excellent drainage. When the grapes have reached optimal maturity, they are hand-harvested in 15-kilogram baskets, to preserve the quality of the fruit.
