MANTEIO WHITE

The magic of the ancient Phocis, where the cultivation of the Argyriou vineyards takes place emerges from the MANTEIO (ORACLE). It is a wine produced from the famous Greek variety Assyrtiko and the international one Chardonnay.

 

Protected Geographical Indication Parnassus

 

Variety Composition
Assyrtiko, Chardonnay

Vinification/Aging
After careful sorting of the grapes, there follows direct pressing. Next comes the alcoholic fermentation of the two varieties separately inside stainless-steel tanks at graded temperatures. And then comes the important point for the development of the blend, that is, the "marriage", i.e. blending of the two wines, which mature in French oak barrels for 4 months, where Battonage continues with a regular stirring program throughout the maturing period.
