The region and the variety: 
From a small vineyard in Kontariotissa, Pieria with poor sandy soils and at an altitude of 350 meters, just below the monastery of Osios Efraim. 100% Mavrotragano, a variety associated with Santorini but producing more fascinating and complete wines in other terroirs. Total production of just 1.300 bottles (the variety is very low yielding but produces fascinating wines).

The wine: The wine has a solid fruit density with fantastic oak integration. Only 300 lts french oak was used, 50% new and with very light toasting. So the fruit that is very pure is in the spotlight; there is also an aromatic lift, provided by vibrant peppery notes. 

How to enjoy it: This is a wine which is at its adolescence phase, with a sound tannic structure for cellaring. Give it time in a decanter, or let it rest for 2-3 years in your cellar. Pair it only with serious meat stuff, such as Black Angus Rangers Valley, Australian Waguy or Snake Rivers Farm Striploin.
