We experience wines of a site with distinctive rarity, without a doubt. One has,
absolutely, to walk on this land, breath the air of Tinos to understand the
dimension of the place.
Mild winter with low amount of rainfall. Budbreak commenced around middle
of March. Flowering was set nicely on good spring weather conditions.
Temperatures in May were high but they dropped significantly in June. July
was very warm followed by a heavy rainfall at the end of it. August was mild
with strong winds. Vintage is characterized as an excellent vintage for
Asyrtiko with an extremely high quality of grapes and at the same time a
good amount of crop.
Harvest took place very early in the morning. Successive picking of the
grapes from a specific plot selected within Stegasta vineyard. Handpicked
clusters placed in 20 Kg, were pressed in pneumatic press. Alcoholic
fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Ageing over lies for 6 months partly in
stainless steel tanks, amphores, and barrels.
The citrusy character of this variety shines through and its typical acidity is
offset by just a touch of oak, giving an almost creamy feel to the palate. The
finish is long and well balanced, with a distinctive mineral and savoury
Granite bedrock with sandy soil. Organically grown grapes. Asyrtiko plot is
situated at 450m of altitude and 10.000 vines/ha with north-east orientation.
The yield is 25hl/ha.
