Region: Heraklion, Crete.
Terroir: Vineyards located on hillsides of altitude up to 400m with cool breezes and low humidity at night.
Oenology: Sweet wine used in religious ceremonies, produced with the traditional way. Over-ripened grapes stay on the vine, sun-dried for about 10 days. Then the fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures between 20o-25°C with the addition of selected yeast strains. The extraction lasts for 6 days emphasizing on the intensity of the colour. When the desired level of sugars and alcohol content is reached, alcoholic fermentation is stopped by dropping the temperature.
Personality: Deep red colour. Intense sweet and soft taste with fine aromas of plum and cinnamon.
Also available in 375ml bottles and 3L bag-in-box.
