Vinification Notes

The Agiorgitiko grapes were cold soaked and macerated for approximately 20 days, to ensure the desired levels of colour, flavour and aromatic extraction. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in traditional oak fermenters at 22 to 28°C. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation, which was followed by 18 to 20 months’ maturation in mostly new French oak casks. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
