"The 2010 Petra, a Roditis, is a wine I've come to like a lot for its purity, consistency and perky, refreshing demeanor. In its youth, this version is another charmer, aromatic, bright and lively, a sunny wine with well integrated crispness, some delicacy, but fine persistence of flavor as well. It is rather delicious and showed beautifully as it warmed up. As noted in the past, I do tend to think these should be drunk as young and fresh as possible for it to do what it does best. It seems pretty close to peak now, however long it theoretically holds. Drink now-2013." (04/12)
"Though first planted in 1967, the Kir-Yianni Estate was founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris, one of the leading figures in the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the premium family wine company that his grandfather established in 1879. The Kir-Yianni Estate continues a long family tradition focusing on the production of high quality wines which combine style with authenticity and offer true enjoyment, from grapes produced at the Estate's extensive vineyard holdings in the two wine regions of Naoussa and Amyndeon, on the two sides of mount Vermio in North-Western Greece. Lead today by Stelios Boutaris, son of Yiannis, it dynamically exploits the cornerstones of the Kir-Yianni philosophy: desire for innovation, respect for tradition and true knowledge of the wine, from the grape to the end consumer."
"The pre-fermentation extraction (skin contact) method is applied, during which the extraction of precursor compounds of the subsequent aroma composition found at the skin of the grape takes place. Then follows the static debourbage and the inoculation with a pure culture of selected yeasts, which demonstrate the aromatic character of the variety. In order to add volume and complexity to the wine, micro-oxygenation and batonnage are applied to inox tanks for a period of 4 months. " - Importer
"The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Agios Panteleimon, in the Amyndeon Appellation in Northwestern Greece. The vineyard's mean yield does not exceed 40 hl/he. The soil is sandy and poor, thus offering the possibility of producing wines of exquisite quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterized by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighboring lakes contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate." - Importer
