Ungrafted Syros Island Serifiotiko grapes give this wine a distinctive aromas of citrus fruit, well integrated alcohol and a dry refreshing aftertaste of Cycladic island minerality, which comes from its immediate proximity to the Aegean Sea.
Julia Harding – Master of Wine
“Ungrafted vines grown on Syros. 35- to 80-year-old bush vines, dry farmed on terraces carved into the mountains. Chilled for 24 hours, whole-bunch pressed. Fermented over 21 days in tank. pH 3.43, RS 3.05 g/l. Pale lemon colour and an intense aroma of dusty, stony but clean-cut citrus. Lemon and grapefruit, as well as pear. Smells pithy. Tastes wonderfully smoky and bone dry even though there is a little touch of residual sugar – only just above the perception threshold. Sour citrus flavours have both clarity and complexity, remarkably so for an unoaked wine. Mouth-watering and slightly chewy. Real depth and interest”.
