Oak Blend is winery owned organic vineyard blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah situated under the majestic Prophet Ilias mountain. Our single vineyard is nestled in a warm climate, allowing for early maturity of our grapes in the first days of August. This hands-on approach results in a smooth tannin wine with a fruity profile that is sure to delight your tastebuds. Our winemakers employ a unique color extraction method that involves low-temperature fermentation for two weeks, ensuring that each sip of Oak Blend is bursting with flavor.
The best part? Oak Blend is the perfect wine to savor during the summer season, with a recommended serving temperature of 12-14°C.
The Oak Blend wine we produce is a combination of three different grape varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah – grown in a single vineyard as well as two vineyards of Amoriano grape. Located in a semi-mountainous region under the mountain of Prophet Ilias, half of these vineyards are self-rooted, and the production ranges from 500kg to 900kg per acre.
To ensure the highest quality of our red wine, we aim to maintain a lower production in the red varieties. The warm climate of the region is perfect for red varieties to thrive, and the harvest season spans from 5th to 12th August. Despite the late harvest, the wine’s acidity ranges from pH 3.2 to 3.3, adding to its unique taste and flavor.
Moving forward, we plan to only plant Greek varieties in our winery. We believe that Greek grape varieties are a treasure that deserves to be celebrated, and we’re committed to showcasing their true potential in all our wines.
Production protocol of Oak Blend organic
Oak Blend organic is a unique blend of Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested and fermented separately with two distinct types of yeast for maximum flavor complexity.
Crafted using a cold soak and maceration process, the wine is kept at low temperatures for 20 days total, allowing for a balanced extraction of flavor and color.
Only free run juice is used after the separation of the skins, resulting in a smoother and more refined wine. The wine is then aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, which imparts a subtle oak flavor and aroma.
The wine is bottled unstabilized and unfiltered, preserving its natural character and richness. Oak Blend organic is a true representation of the vineyard’s commitment to sustainability and organic farming practices.
