Vineyard
The vineyard Kir-Yianni in Naoussa is located at an altitude of 230-320m., At the foot of East Vermion. The climate of the area is characterized by abundant rains in the winter and spring, while the summers mild drought. The soil is clayey to ammoargilopilodi recommendation, moderate slopes and mainly southeast orientation. For this reason, the total area of ​​about 500 acres divided into 30 plots, each with specific installation and crop care.
In particular, for "Two Olives" selected the Syrah grown in slightly acidic soils of the workpiece 19, Merlot planted on calcareous, sandy loam soils of panel 23 and Xinomavro planted on clayey soils of the workpiece 27. All pieces have a southeast orientation. Planting density is from 350 to 400 vines per acre and yields no more than 800 pounds per stremma.

The orientation of the "Two Olives" is determined by the volume of phenolic Merlot, velvety aftertaste and Mediterranean bouquet of Syrah and the aromatic character of Xinomafrou.
So, after the selection of plots and strict control of grapes on the sorting table, the method of pre-fermentation extraction at 11-12 ° C, in antioxidant environment for 5-7 days and for each variety separately, since each one has different maturity date. Then, Merlot fermented at 29-30 ° C and further driven into metazymotiki heating period for 3-4 days. Contrast, Syrah ferments at 22-24 ° C and driven quickly to new barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. Xinomavro ferment at 22 ° C in open tanks and recycled to the method of pigeage, to avoid the breakage of kernels, from which unpleasant tannins, while pulling of the marc is before the end of the alcoholic zymosis.
