Rosé Nikolaou

Varietal Composition: Dry Red Wine from 100% Agiorgitiko grapes.

Origin: The grapes are organically grown in the private 1h vineyard of the Nikolaou family at the area of Duramani, with an average vine age of 8-10 years. The slope of the selected vineyard parcel is 2%, oriented towards the south, with a yield of approximately 1000 kg per acre. No pesticides and fertilizers are used other than Bordeaux mixture, Sulphur and organic mulch (biological compost).

Production: Pruning of vines in February and harvest in mid-September.

Vinification: The grapes intended for this wine are picked by hand once they reach the desired level of phenolic and alcoholic maturity. They are cooled at 4oC and go through cryoextraction at 8oC for 8 hours. Using only the free-run, they are put through the alcoholic fermentation process, which takes place in stainless controlled temperature vats at a temperature of 18oC in order to bring out the entire bouquet of the variety. In keeping with the principles of organic farming, we only add the bare minimum necessary quantity of Sulphur dioxide.

Organoleptic characteristics: Light ruby color with vanilla and cherry bouquets, balanced acidity and fruity aftertaste.

Serving: At a temperature of 12oC.

Food combination: Light meals and spaghetti.
