Tasting Notes

AROMA: An aromatic complex wine which combines powerfully fresh red fruit and notes of rose, make up the new vintage of 2018 Ramnista. PALATE: On the palate, gentle tannins and round mouth feel, with distinctive sense of the oak barrel. The unexpected full body and robust acidity showcase a great wine.

Winemakers Note

The Kir-Yianni vineyards have an overall southeast exposure at an altitude of 120-280 m. The estate is divided into a mosaic of 42 vineyard blocks of different mesoclimates with varying exposure, orientation, slope, soil type, rootstock, vine density and age, demanding tailor-made viticultural practices for each vineyard block. Rainfall is abundant during the winter months, but summers are so dry that regulated drip irrigation is applied to prevent water stress. Vine density ranges from 3,500 to 4,000 per hectare and the average crop yield is maintained below 2.5 kg per vine. For Ramnista we use grapes mostly from the vineyard blocks of lower pH and with lighter soil type in order to maximize the aromatic intensity and complexity.
