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. The calcium-rich, clayish soil, the very low yielding vines and the distinctive
microclimate, which is formed by the cool Aegean summer breeze, combine to
create a unique terroir for viticulture and wine production.

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.
