80% Xinomavro and 20% Merlot from Polla Nera, Vantos.
The grapes are harvested early September for the Merlot and towards the end of September for the Xinomavro. The only intervention that is done is the addition of a very small amount of sulfur dioxide. No added yeasts or enzymes, no filtration, no clarification etc.
Extraction for 6 to 8 days in stainless steel tanks. Aged in 225l French oak barrels of 2nd up to 6th use. Kostis Dalamara has been making the wine entirely since the 2011 vintage.
Clean and delicate aromas of cherries, wild strawberries, raspberries with hints of cinnamon and tomato paste. Light body, medium to high acidity, well-structured tannins. 12.5% alcohol.
