Vinification & wine making  process

The grapes used for this label are sourced from a limited batch of steep inclined, high altitude vineyards. The vines mature a month later than is typical onthe island of Rhodes, maturing them in mild rhythms so they do not lose acidity and aroma. When the grapes reach the winery, they stay in a cooling chamber before any processing. The extraction process is short and the fermentation is slow. Uniquely, by adding 2 different kinds of yeast we achieve a fuller, more complex body. The wine is left to mature at low temperatures, along with the lees, for 3 months prior to the bottling process.
