Early harvest grapes from Pyrgos village. After cooling them down at 5οC, the grapes were pressed as quickly as possible and the juice was left to settle down. Primary fermentation took place, resulting in a base wine with a neutral flavor character, high acidity and just a moderate alcohol by volume. The wine was stabilized and filtered and a proportion of liqueur de tirage was added to encourage the secondary fermentation. The wine was left over a period of at least 14 months on the lees in the bottle, in a process known as yeast autolysis.

Total Production: 6.400
