Description

La Tour Melas Idylle d'Achinos Rose 2021


La Tour Melas Idylle d'Achinos Rose is a beautiful, pale-coloured rose, Provencal in style with elegant strawberry notes and an underlying minerality. A delightful wine, representing summer so beautifully. Pink in colour with silver reflections. Fine and elegant nose with crisp aromas of rose petal. Fleshy and soft mouth, with mango and white peach aftertaste. Provencal style of rosé.

100% Agiorgitiko. Idylle d' Achinos La Tour Melas, the rose wine of Kyros Melas that changed everything we knew about Greek rose wines, by following the standards of Provence, is the rose that is sold out first every year! The reason is not only its delicate color but mainly its incredible concentration, exemplary elegance, and balance.

Typically Mediterranean climate. Mild wet winters, with hot and dry summers. Low rainfall between 600 and 700 mm. The impact of the sea is very important as the breeze brings humidity and maintains the grapevines cool during the day, whereas the rocky soil keeps the vines warm at night. The terraces are Northeast facing. All these elements combined offer an ideal micro-climate.

The terroir of sloping terraces is composed of alluvial gravels of the Quaternary and rises up to 200 meters above the sea level, separated only by two kilometres. These gravels mainly consist of clays, sands, grits and limestone coastal conglomerates. Average age of vineyards is 100 years old.

Vinified in cold temperature and aged on lees for 6 months.
