Harvest | 2018 - Night harvest by hand picking of the grapes, during the 4th week of September.
Vinification | The grapes, after the end of the night harvest and before sunrise, are carried to our winery in small lattices, maintaining their freshness and the low temperature of the night. This is followed by their separation from the stems, as they are concentrated in the Basket Press, in order to collect the grape must very quickly, and to start the alcoholic fermentation by the indigenous - wild yeasts, that are found on the fruit and in the vineyard. The addition to the grape must during fermentation of 0,4g/L of Aleppo Pine Resin, which is traditionally collected by hand from the forest of Kouvaras at Eastern Attica, offers a unique taste. The power of fermentation dissolves the resin and gives the characteristic flavour to the wine. After the end of the fermentation, the fresh wine remains for 8 months with the fine lees, applying the "batonnage" method.
