Winemaking report:

The skins of Assyrtiko macerated in stainless steel tanks with the must for 5-7 days at low temperature. After removal of the pomace, the must produced by the first run juice ferments at 18º- 21º C for 20-30 days. During the fermentation high quality pine resin from the mountains of Evia is added, following an ancient recipe. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, no oenological substances added, followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The produced wine is racked from the very dense sediments and sur-lie on fine lees for three months. No protein stabilization, only tartaric stabilization.

Aging potential:

Potential age up to 5 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 12-16ο C.
