About

Product Description:

"100% Assyrtiko (an indigenous variety that grows well in hot and dry conditions, while retaining good acidity) from unique vineyards situated on the mountainous slopes of Aigialeia region in northern Peloponnese, at an altitude of 700 to 900 meters (2295 to 2950 feet) above sea level facing the Corinthian gulf. The soils are mainly sandy loam and sandy clay loam on a bedrock of cohesive conglomerates with sands. The yields are never above 80hl/ha. Their various advantages (north facing aspect, overlooking at the sea, high altitude, well-drained slopes and mountains-barriers that protect them from the hot summer winds) are the most critical factors for high quality fruit.

Aged on the lees in tanks for four months and in bottle for a year. It does not go through malolactic fermentation. Full-bodied with notes of orange blossom, a crisp finish and unique minerality. 12% alcohol." -Importer
