Semeli Thea Mantinia

Wine maker Oenologist: Yiannis Flerianos

Grape Variety: Moschofilero 100%
Vineyard: Grapes from estate owned old, low yielding vineyard, at an altitude of 650m. on the slopes of Mantinia appellation.
Soil:Clay and slightly limestone.
Yield: 50 hl/ha.
Microclimate: Harsh winters and cool summer nights prevailing in the region, due to high altitude, allow grapes to ripen slowly reaching perfect maturation, retaining acidity and fully developing the distinctive flavors and aromas of this pink skinned grape variety.
Harvest: 9th of October.
Vinification: Grapes are handpicked, they are then chilled to 7-8oC in cold storage and after cold soaked, mild pressed by pneumatic press and followed by classic white vinification. Fermentation at low temperatures of 16-17oC. Immediately after the fermentation of the wine, the maturation follows for 6 months on its fine lees, 30% in acacia barrels and the rest in stainless steel tank. The technique of ‘batonnage’ is then applied. We use the gravity in many stages of the production process, in order to treat the grapes and the wine as well, with the most gentle way possible.
