Vinification: After a night harvest, the grapes travel from Santorini to Syros, only four hours after being picked, where both vinification and bottling take place in the facilities of a fellow winemaker. Whole clusters are pressed using a pneumatic press. The juice is kept for a day in a tank, at low temperatures, allowing it to clarify a little. Next day it's racked. The juice is pumped gently into a small inox tank and the fermentation takes place there with a selected yeast. The wine ferments at 22ºC. Ageing on the lees for a year before bottling. 16 months in the bottle, before being released.
