GR-KYI-71-15M

Sparkling Rose, ‘Akakies’, Kir-Yianni

100% Xinomavro. The grapes are sourced from the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon within the Amyndeon appellation in Florina, Northwestern Greece. The high altitude (600m) and the poor sandy soils of the area lead to the production of wines displaying finesse and a rare aromatic character. The four surrounding lakes that act as a buffer zone create perfect weather conditions for the cultivation of Xinomavro, more temperate than expected in this continental climate. Three pressings take place under continuous and gradually increasing pressure. For the production of Akakies Sparkling only the second pressing is used. The wine stays on less for 3-5 months, frequently stirred.
