Winemaker’s Notes:
Armenistis is a label made mainly from Moschato grapes. Moschato is the second most popular variety of our island. it can make perfect desert wines but not only by blendingthis ungrafted wineyard of Moschato with high acidity varieties we can make a truly unique wine. Citrus core with many herbal notes, high acidity with minerality, layred and complex.



Armenistis wine is a true masterpiece, crafted from the finest selection of five different organic vineyards. Two of these vineyards are home to rare, ungrafted Moschato grapes,which give the wine a unique profile that cannot be found anywhere else on the island of Rodos.

The Chardonnay vineyard boasts an impressive age of 27 years, while the Sauvignon Blanc and Malagouzia vineyards are a respectable six years old. All of these vineyards are located in a semi-mountainous region beneath the mighty Prophet Ilias mountain, which is rich in limestone.

The grapes from these exquisite vineyards are harvested early, around the 25-29 of July. This means that the Armenistis vineyards are the first in all of Europe to be harvested, showcasing the exceptional quality and dedication to detail that is put into each bottle of Armenistis wine.


Production protocol of Armenistis

After harvesting the grapes, it is crucial to store them in the fridge for 24 hours. This ensures the temperature drops from 30°C to 15°C or below, sometimes even as low as 6°C. Any temperature below 20°C is acceptable, but the lower, the better. To preserve the natural flavors and aromas of the grapes, we do not use any sulfides during the juicing process. We only extract juice until the pressure reads 0.2 atm. Additionally, to prevent oxidation, we use dry ice as an antioxidant. Carbon dioxide competes with oxygen, ensuring the aroma of the grapes remains intact.

We keep the juice at 5°C for a day or two and then begin the fermentation process. Firstly, we prepare wild yeast and ferment for three days. Next, we introduce the second yeast, which completes the fermentation process. We employ one tank for Chardonnay, Malagouzia, and Sauvignon Blanc blends, and conduct their alcoholic fermentation at 14-16°C. We use a neutral yeast for the second tank, which we use for Moschato, this yeast expresses the vineyard’s terroir and brings out the limestone flavor.

After fermentation, we age the wine on the lees for six months. Following this, we blend the wine and stabilize it at -2°C. Lastly, we employ light filtration, and bottle the wine. Overall, by adhering to strict temperature and preparation guidelines, we ensure the highest quality wine possible.
