This wine is produced from a single vineyard in the PDO zone of Patras at an altitude of 850m. The exact location is Ano Pythos. Unirrigated bush-vines, almost 50 years of age, on limestone soils, produce low yields of just 12.5 hl/ha with significantly high natural acidity. The must is fermented with the stems and skins in clay amphorae, with a total extraction period of 21 days. Spontaneous alcoholic and malolactic fermentation is followed by 6 months maturation in neutral oak. The colour is amber and the nose opens up with a lovely range of aromas reminiscent of tangerine zest, candied apricot and apple, together with white pepper. Quite intense. The palate is delicious, medium bodied, with a creamy character and firm tannins that are not aggressive, but add power and excitement to the wine. Fresh acidity provides energy to the wine, which has quite a long finish marked by peppery and herbal notes. Decanting is suggested here, along with the use of a proper glass.
