The fruit is sourced from a four-acre single vineyard in the celebrated Megalochori area, consisted of ungrafted Assyrtiko vines with an average age of 70 years. Well protected from the harsh north winds while rich in basaltic stones, this leads to a lusciously fruited wine with pronounced stony minerality.
