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.
Vineyard
The indigenous variety of Vidiano (pronounced Vid-ee-an-O) is grown in the Dafnes
subregion of Heraklion, in a vineyard located in a semi mountainous area 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 calciumrich, clayish soils offer good nutrients and excellent water retention to nourish the vines
through the hot, dry summers. The low-yielding vines are trained according to the Royat
method and produce just nine hectolitres per hectare. The soils, very low yielding vines
and the distinctive microclimate, combine to create a unique terroir in which the
Vidiano variety thrives.
Winemaking
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 and
then cold maceration took place for approximately six hours. The free-run juice was
removed without pressing. 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 for 10 to 12 days at a controlled temperature of 15°C
to retain the characteristics of the Vidiano grape.
Tasting Note
Delicate aromatic characters of ripe peach, apricot and melon, lead to a refreshing
acidity which balances the rich and charming palate. With an impressively aromatic
finish, this is the quintessential introduction to the Vidiano grape.
