From a single vineyard at an altitude of 800 meters in Sofiana, Corinth, Yiannis Papargyriou produces a rich and thick, 'continental' in character Assyrtiko. Mellow peaches and sweet apricots in the nose along herbal nuances give the tone. On the palate, despite the high alcohol, the razor sharp acid provides lovely balance and freshness. A gastronomical wine with intense personality to accompany pork-based dishes, richly flavoured fish or mature gruyere. It is released in just 668 bottles. 2018-2023 (Yiannis Karakasis MW)

(Yields 30 hl/ha, 5 days maceration, 9 months with the lees in 2nd use 500 litres French oak, 15%, pH 3.21, TA 6.4 g / lt)
