Winemaker Notes

Petra is a white dry wine has a rich yellow color with greenish tints. Petra 2006 is a nice crisp, fresh white wine with lemon character and citrus flavour. It has a great acidity, that one does not find in wines of this level, and a beautiful round finish. A great summer wine.

 

Viticulture

The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon, in the Amyndeon Appelation in Northwestern Greece. The vineyard’s mean yield does not exceed 40 hl/he. The soil is sandy and poor, thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterised by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighbouring lakes contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate.

Winemaking

The pre-fermentation extraction (skin contact) method is applied, during which the extraction of precursor compounds of the subsequent aroma composition found at the skin of the grape takes place. Then follows the static debourbage and the inoculation with a pure culture of selected yeasts, which demonstrate the aromatic character of the variety. In order to add volume and complexity to the wine, micro-oxygenation and "batonnage" are applied to inox tanks for a period of 4 months.
