Dry, Still, Red, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Keep for 2-3 years
Vissa is an impressive Xinomavro produced away from the traditional xinomavro area. It flirts with a more modern new-world style rather than the traditional style of Xinomavro. Bold red fruits such as cherry and strawberry jams, spices and vanilla from the barrel leading to a mouth with tight tannins and great fruit concentration.
Medium (+) intensity ruby color deep for the standards of the variety, with a bouquet dominated by red fruits like cherry and strawberry jams, spices, licorice and vanilla. In the mouth characteristic acidity and tight wild tannins which probably need time to soften. Rather than wait, match it with a juicy steak and enjoy it now.

Producer Karadimos
Producer's Description 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.
