Tasting Note

Aromas of strawberry, cherry and rose petals, combined with spicy notes, tomato, olive tapenade, tobacco box, sweet spices and vanilla. The wine’s aromatic power and structure reveal strong character and great ageing potential. A typical expression of a Naoussa Xinomavro that will benefit from some time of decanting so that it reveals its full complexity.

Winemaking

Xinomavro is one of these capricious varieties that are very selective about the soil and the climate where they grow. Indigenous to the vineyards of northern Greece, it finds here its proper place, having a unique ability to express its terroir. The blocks within the vineyard used for Ramnista have an overall southeast exposure at an altitude of 280-330m. Vine density ranges from 3,500 to 4,000 per hectare. Grapes for Ramnista come from the vineyard blocks in the lower pH range and with lighter soil types to maximize the aromatic intensity and complexity. Moreover most of these blocks are closest to the nearby forest, where the more humid mesoclimate leads to a more tempered ripening pace.

The grapes are handpicked, chilled overnight and sorted on a conveyor belt before crushing. After a six–day pre-fermentation cold soak at 8-10°C, the must undergoes a 12-15 day vinification at controlled temperatures. Fermentation temperature does not exceed 25°C. Roughly one third of the wine ferments in open-top tanks with pigeage. The final blend is made five months after harvest and the last racking takes place about six months later. We use both French and American oak, new oak up to 25%, and about 25% 500-lt casks. We filter lightly before bottling.
