100% Assyrtiko from Greece
Spontaneous fermentation with only indigenous yeats in steel vats with 30 days of skins maceration. Unfiltered and unclarified.
The grapes for this wine grow on an almost 2-meter high pergola system, which is used to retain more moisture in the clay and limestone soil. With a fairly acidic grape it “drains” some of the acidity away. As a bonus this also helps with keeping diseases away. After they harvest the grapes, they sit for a couple of hours with their skins and then press them by gravity. After fermentation, the wine is aged in used oak barrels for up to a year. What you get in the glass is a beautiful darker orange wine with some notes of overripe stone fruit, honey, and wild herbs. This will pair perfectly with Greek food like bifteki or fried calamari.
