VASSALTIS VINEYARDS | SANTORINI
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.
