sauvignon blanc

WINE CATEGORY: White Dry

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

GRAPE ORIGINATION: Muses Valley, on the mountain of Helicon in Central Greece

INSPIRATION: The 9 Muses who lived in Muses Valley

CLIMATE: The climate is characterized by mild, wet winters and dry summers, with long periods of sunshine

WINE CHARACTERISTICS: A fresh and lively Sauvignon Blanc, with clean aromas of straw and grass-hay. The palate is experiencing a good concentration and balance in flavor, and last but not least, a smooth ending.

HARMONY: White meats including Chicken, Pork Chop and Turkey or fish including Sea Bass, Perch and Sole! Look also for softer more briny and sour cheeses like Goat’s milk cheese and green veggies or mix vegetables so that the acidity of the wine shines through.

VINEYARD: The soil is fertile, with mixed composition ranging from sandy loam to clay loam thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold winters and warm summers, while a small river called Permisos contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate

VINEYARD SLOPE: The vineyards are located at an altitude between 450 and 550m and have a slope between 3 and 7%

VINE-GROWING: We cultivate our vines according to the principles of integrated agriculture, which ensures protection for the environment, the consumer and the people working in the fields. 

Most of the varieties are planted in linear vineyards trained in double cordon royat. We plant all of our vines in densely planted rows, a technique which results in lower yields per vine and, therefore, higher quality grapes
