Producer Kir Yiannis
Producer's Description The Four Lakes is a wine with a crystal clear golden color. In the tangle of bouquet floral aromas typical of Gewurztraminer with notes of lemon, pineapple and coriander of Chardonnay. In the mouth there is a velvety, oily aftertaste supported by the volume and duration of oxytitas.
The Four Lakes produced from grapes grown at 600 meters. The vineyard has a total area of ​​165 acres and is located in St. Panteleimon, within the boundaries of the viticultural area Amyndeo. The yield per hectare of vineyard does not exceed 800 pounds for Roditi and Xinomavro, about 700 pounds for the Chardonnay and 600 pounds for the Gewürztraminer. The poor and sandy soils offer the ability to produce wines of great finesse and rich aroma. The area is characterized by cold winters and hot summers, but the presence of four lakes, which create a mild microclimate ideal for growing white varieties. These four lakes give the wine its name tou.
During vinification followed the method of pre-fermentation extraction (skin contact) for all varieties except Xinomavro, which, when engaged in the blend, vinified using the method blanc de noir. Followed by settling and inoculation with a pure culture of selected yeasts, which reflect the formality of each flavor variety. The fermentation and maturation of 50% of the total quantity of Chardonnay is made in oak barrels with stirring of the lees, a process that adds volume, oil and complexity. The remainder Chardonnay, and other varieties are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The final blend is in early February.
