Akakies is the final blend of two winemaking techniques: 90% of the must undergoes skin contact and 10% comes from the bleeding off of juice fermenting for red wine. Grapes are kept in cold rooms to achieve temperatures between 11 and 14ºC. After destemming and crushing, skin contact takes place under CO2 atmosphere to avoid oxidisation for 12 to 48 hours depending on the grape quality. After fermentation the wine is aged on lees for 3 months with 3 times per week stirring to soften the natural acidity and increase opulency.
Bright rose colour with blue hues. The typical aromas of ripe strawberry and cherry of Xinomavro bind harmoniously with the notes of rose petals. On the palate, the bold acidity balances with the aromatic intensity and lingers into a long-lasting, flavorful finish.
Food Pairing: It can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or matched perfectly with roasted chicken, dishes based on salmon or tuna and vegetarian dishes of the Mediterranean or Asian cuisine.
