The magic of the land of ancient Phocis, where the cultivation of the Argyriou vineyards takes place, emerges from MANTEIO (ORACLE). This is a wine produced from the very local Greek variety Mavroudi and the international one Cabernet Sauvignon.
Protected Geographical Indication Parnassus
Cabernet Sauvignon, Mavroudi
After harvesting the grapes in cages of 15 kilos, we select the healthy grapes very carefully. Those, then, are taken to the destemming unit (in the absence of a grape mill) and then vinified separately due to the different degree of maturation that each variety has. Cabernet ferments at high temperatures 26-28ºC to achieve the best color intensity, while Mavroudi at 18-22ºC in order to maintain the maximum aromatic potential of the variety. This is followed by aging in French oak barrels.
