Plethora 2018


Plethora is a unicorn, high-end wine inspired by ancestral winemaking techniques.

The best Assyrtiko grapes of the year are harvested overripe, around two weeks after the main picking. The wine ferments in stainless steel tanks. Its overripe character results in a high alcohol level, leaving some degree of residual sugar. The wine then matures in old local barrels that are not topped up allowing for a gentle oxidation to take place. After twelve months in the barrels, the wine is bottled and cellared for two years before its release.

A most exciting and profound wine! One for the collectors!

Plethora means an abundance or excess of something.


Andromachi’s Tasting Notes

The nose shows wonderfully creamy, dusty, biscuity aromas of lees, lemon peel, honey suckle, dried herbs, Japanese green tea and tell tale salty sherry flor nuances. Subtle notes of dried mint leaf, bruised yellow orchard fruits, wet grey slate and wet basalt round out a thoroughly complex and intriguing bouquet. Full and broad, the wine has an incredibly concentrated texture of salted lemons, tequila agave spice, bitter oranges, oyster shell, white peaches, grated pears, pineapple pastille, botanical herbs and an awesome, towering acidity.
