Dry Red Wine
A dry red wine, the result of a skillful blending of Mavrotragano, Voudomato and Athiri grape varieties. These rare varieties cover only 3-5% of the vineyard of Santorini and in the local dialect are called «Xenoloo», hence the name of this outstanding quality wine. The harvest begins in early August so that the grapes are picked before they are fully ripe. The first fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 22oC and is followed by the malolactic fermentation. The wine matures in french oak barrels for a period of 12 months prior to bottling.
Gavalas’ Xenoloo is a wine characterized by its vivid personality, velvety taste and a rich nutty bouquet.
It is an ideal accompaniment to game, meat with red sauces, light spicymeals and cheese. The production is strictly limited.
