Dry, Rosé, Still, Xinomavro

Shiny and pink – aroma of forest fruits, strawberries and tomatoes, simply a great Rosé

750 ml

Type of wine: Dry Rosé Wine

Appellation: The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon, in the Amyndeon Appelation in Northwestern Greece, the only Greek P.D.O for rosé wines. The vineyard’s mean yield does not exceed 40 hl/he. The soil is sandy and poor, thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighbouring lakes contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate.

Vinification: Akakies is the final blend of two winemaking techniques: 90% of the must undergoes skin contact and 10% comes from the bleeding off of juice fermenting for red wine. Grapes are kept in cold rooms to achieve temperatures between 11 and 14ºC. After destemming and crushing, skin contact takes place under CO2 atmosphere to avoid oxidization for 12 to 48 hours depending on the grape quality. After fermentation the wine is aged on lees for 3 months with 3 times per week stirring to soften the natural acidity and increase opulency.

Varieties:  Xinomavro 100%

Alcohol: 12,5%

Tasting Notes: Shiny pink rose with blue highlights. Complex flavours emerge in the nose, dominated by forest fruits, strawberries and tomatoes. The mouth follows the nose, rich, fragrant and lively in a proper balance of alcohol and acidity, an example of a great year.

Pairing: As an aperitif or matched with roasted chicken, salmon or tuna and together with vegetarian dishes of the Mediterranean or Asian cuisine.

Allergen declaration: Contains sulphites
