CHARDONNAY BARRIQUE 2016

WINEMAKING

 

The Vineyard is located on the Epanomi peninsula, 500 meters from the coastline. The harvest time is crucial for Chardonnay, since the berries lose precious acidity during the ripening process. Therefore the Chardonnay was  harvested  in the first week of August to achieve a nice balance of acidity, aroma and structure in the Wine.  Only the best grapes were selected for this wine, which is fermented in 300 ltr oak barrels. After the fine racking it is kept an additional six months on the  lees.

 

EYES, NOSE, PALATE

 

Bright yellow with golden reflections

The nose is strongly aromatic with apples, pineapples and a variety of flowers. The barrel vinification is supplementing it with vanilla and balsamic notes which overall creates a wine with a highly interesting bouquet and an impressive body.
Tropical Fruits and spicy, smoky vanilla notes linger for a long time in the aftertaste

 

FOOD PAIRING

 

Spicy shellfish, gratin, roast chicken or turkey
