The flagship. Made from un grafted (30-60 year old) vines. Fermented in the bottle using Champagne method. Unfiltered. Razor sharp and very aromatic.

Wine Advocate April 2018 “…this elegant Xinomavro sparkler shows its class with its fine acidity and caressing texture. The big finish is all about the tension and grip. This is nicely balanced, but I was impressed that it lingered more than I thought it could on the finish. The longer I had this, the more I liked its graceful yet persistent presentation. It should hold well for a few years, but don’t hesitate to dive in now…” -Mark Squires
