Semeli Thea Mantinia

Wine maker: Yiannis Flerianos

Grape Varieties: Moschofilero 100%

Vineyards: 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 prevail in the region, due to high altitude, allowing grapes to ripen slowly reaching perfect maturation, retaining acidity, and fully developing the distinctive flavors and aromas of this pink – skinned grape variety.

Harvest: October 10th.

Vinification: Classic white vinification. Grapes are handpicked, chilled at 7-8oC in cold storage, and after a cold soak, they are mildly pressed by pneumatic presses. Fermentation at low temperatures at 14- 16oC. After fermentation, the wine remains on its fine lees (“sur lees”) for 6 months, 30% in acacia barrels – 70% in stainless steel tank, with occasional “batonnage” is then applied. We use the gravity in many stages of the production process, in order to “treat” the grapes and the wine in the gentlest way possible.
