Region: Thessaloniki, Greece
Vinification: After halting primary fermentation, we brought the blend of Assyrtiko 50% and Malagouzia 50% ready wine down to a cool temperature and let it settle off of its primary lees. Next year we add fermented must of Xinomavro to this ready wine in the bottle provides the sparkle and leesy feel as it gets turned into alcohol and CO2. We do not disgorge, leaving the wine hazy, creating broader palate weight, pleasing textures, and balance throughout. This special bottling is done entirely by hand. After the bottling we do remuage the bottles for 3 weeks.After we let the bottles stand for at least 3 months before to be ready for sales.
