The youngest Vinsanto of Estate Argyros, demonstrating what youth is for such a wine. A strict selection of excessively old Assyrtiko, Aidani and Athiri vineyards in Episkopi, two hundred year old minimum, specifically earmarked for this style. Harvested at very deep ripeness, almost a month after the main picking date, giving insanely low yields. The grapes are sun dried for ten days, natural fermentation and three years of ageing takes place in old concrete vats, with additional aging for four years in old wooden vats. A luscious wine, with fruit at the forefront. Attractive caramel color. Good aromatic intensity, with complexity. Dried apricots, peel bergamot, nuts and grains are being distinguished. Easy to drink, with a good ratio of sweetness - acidity and notes of honey and dried yellow fruits.
