Description
Cool climate modern expression of Chardonnay. Quality dry white wine, 100% Chardonnay variety. Limited quantity, bottled in 200 cases.
Origin
Grown in the highlands of northern Peloponnese. The high altitude (950 m) along with the NW exposure ensure high diurnal temperature variations, mitigate hot summer days and advance the effect of cold nights. The long grape hanging period extends to over 130 days. Organic farming grapes are hand-picked at targeted high ripeness levels. Controlled yield (40 hl/ha) improves quality.
Vinification
De-stemmed grapes undergo a pre-fermentative extraction at low temperatures, light pressing juice is cold-settled prior to fermentation. Inoculation with selected yeast strains ferment must sugars to 2,2 gr/lt RS. Fermentation is followed by fine lees contact for 7 months with occasional lees stirring. Partly aged in old oak barrels.
