Culinary Characteristics

Bright, white and yellow colour with greenish highlights. Intense, vivid aromas of exotic fruit, like pineapple and lychee, lay in a mineral background composing its exuberant personality. It unfolds elegantly in the mouth with a sharp and cooling acidity that provides vitality, aroma abundance and an extended after-taste.

Grapes Provenance

From the selected “Aetos” (Eagle) vineyard (this is why the bottle’s label depicts an eagle), on the foothills of mountain Telethrio. Total area of 5,000 square meters.

Soil Type

Sandy soil with many pebbles, with slope gradient 18% and an altitude of 400 meters. By a fortunate occurrence, our vineyards’ soil, where Assyrtiko is cultivated, holds many similarities with the soil in Santorini, where the variety originates from. This is due to the fact that there are sulphurous hot springs in Edipsos, where the wine variety finds the proper environment to express itself. Therefore, the wine’s varietal character is designated, expressing the “Aetos” vineyard.

Vinification - Maturation

Skin contact maceration for 12 hours at 5°C. Then, slow must fermentation in stainless tanks within a controlled environment. Wine’s presence on its fine lees with batonnage for 6 months.
