Naxian Wine

Odd Blend

Dry White Wine

Odd Blend is expressing the traditional paradox of planting red and white indigenous varieties in one single plot, aiming to a combined harvest and vinification in order to reveal its multidimensional complexity.

A tribute to local cultivation and winemaking practices with a contemporary point of view, a juggler’s cascade between tradition and modernity.

Varieties

Field blend of indigenous varieties
White:
Potamisi, Aidani, Monemvasia
Red: Fokiano, Mandilaria

Origin of grapes

Grapes are sourced from our private-own vineyard at Glinado Village in Western Naxos. A single plot of the white varieties Potamisi, Aidani, Monemvasia together with the red Fokiano and Mandilaria. Dry-farmed, low yielding vines, about 15 years old, grown organically. Sandy-clay soil with a high proportion of granite trashes. PGI Cyclades

Vinification

The approach is linked to the traditional paradox of vinifying white and red varieties together. The single harvest approach and co-fermentation consist the tribute to local winemaking practices. A classic white vinification is conducted after the direct pressing of the totality of the grapes. Vinification starts by indigenous flora and the temperature is maintained controlled at 16-18° aiming to develop the special varietal characteristics. Vinification in inox tank, sur-lie ageing for 8 months with few lees stirring.

Description

Tropical, citrus peel notes at the background. Medium body with chewy texture, intriguing tannicity for a ‘white’ wine and herbal aromas. Vibrant acidity with sweet finish lead to a balanced wine.

Potamisi

Dry White Wine

Potamisi is a rare Greek indigenous variety, minimally explored for its aptitude and characteristics. Its history is linked to Naxos, as it is one of the main varieties of this historic island. A part of our vineyard is selected separately, in an effort to discover the variety’s potential and to showcase its characteristics.
