Vinification Notes

The Roditis grapes were meticulously selected, harvested and pressed immediately on arrival at the winery. Classic white vinification followed with ermentation taking place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

When fermentation had finished the wine was drawn off, leaving the resin remaining at the bottom of the tank, resulting in a wine in perfect balance.
