"A red dry wine made from the Agiorgitiko grape. The vines are planted on a ten-degree slope facing West-Southwest. After harvest, selected grapes are crushed and inoculated with strains of dry active yeast. The skins and juice are left in contact with each other for approximately six days at 28C. After fermentation, the wine is racked twice for clarity and then matured in French oak casks for approximately forty-five days. The result is a violet colored wine with intense flavor, well-structured body and low tannin." ~ Winery notes
