Kir-Yianni Akakies Sparkling Rose

Regular price $29.00
Rose petal color and intense mousse are the first signs of a wine that has been created to make a celebration out of any occasion. The experience is completed by the vivid strawberry and cherry aromas, typical of Xinomavro, and the pronounced acidity that adds nerve and lift, balancing with the wine’s elegant sweetness.

The grapes are sourced from the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon within the Amyndeon appellation in Florina, Northwestern Greece. The high altitude (600m) and the poor sandy soils of the area lead to the production of wines displaying finesse and a rare aromatic character. The four surrounding lakes that act as a buffer zone create perfect weather conditions for the cultivation of Xinomavro, more temperate than expected in this continental climate.

The great diversification of the vineyard blocks, leads to wide variations regarding the technological and phenolic ripeness of the grapes between the different vintages and requires a meticulous management of each vintage. Therefore, the grapes are classified at the moment of delivery at the winery by alcohol potential, acidity, phenols and bunch weight. This selection, which is carried out every year, allows choosing the proper wine making technique taking into account the quality and the different properties of the raw material.
