ΜΑΝΤΕΙΟ WHITE
Αssyrtiko, Chardonnay
Protected geographical indication Parnassus

The magic of the ancient land where the cultivation of Argyriou vineyards is carried out, is demonstated at MANTEIO (Oracle). A wine produced from the Greek variety Assyrtiko and the international  Chardonnay.

Golden yellow in color, a refined wine. Reminiscent of tropical yellow fruits and citrus lemonade aromas accompanied by a mild oak flavor. Rich fat body with a pleasant long-lasting aftertaste.

Vinification / Aging
After the careful sorting of the grapes  is followed by direct pressing.  Then the alcoholic fermentation of the two varieties is carried out in different varieties at room temperature. An important point for the evolution of the blend is the "marriage" of the two wines where they mature in oak French barrels for 4 months, where the Battonage continues throughout with a regular stirring program.

Terroir

The soil has a clay texture and moderate slopes that allow good drainage.   The microclimate of the area is characterized by abundant rain and snowfall in winter and mild and cool summers.
