Medium intensity with lemon flavors which have intensity and depth combining peach, grapefruit and white flower with toasted wood and vanilla. In the mouth dry and creamy texture and balanced acidity, while the flavors play again with stone fruits such as peach and apricot and integrated barrel expressed with hints of vanilla and toasted nuts. Aftertaste with maturity and aging potential for a least 4 years.

The VISSA wine has been produced from fully ripe organic farming
Xinomavro grapes from our 10 y.o. family owned single
vineyard named "PaleoKastra"(means the old castle)-"Vissa"
at the time of Homer. Multicloned low yield Xinomavro
vines are growing in low fertility limestony-clay soils with
almost 30% active Ca+2. The 2009 growing season may be
described as a cold winter(provided plenty of rainfall deposit
water), a cool to cold healthy spring and a cold summer
one without heat picks. All these annual elements led to
concentrated fruit with high level of fully matured medium
grained tannins. It was vinified in 35hl stainless steel tanks,
undergone full of malolactic transformation and matured
14 months into 70% new oak of which 50% 228l, 50% 400l,
20% 2nd use 225l and 10% 3rd use 225l. The VISSA wine
is physically stabilised.
