Vinification The vineyard's soil is composed of a mixture of sand and clay. Hand-picked, the grapes undergo a maceration for 10 hours at low temperatures. The fermentation is conducted partly in French oak barrels, partly in stainless steel for 20 days with extended contact with the lees for up to two weeks. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 4-5 months.
Taste Profile Fermented and aged a few months in oak, this Mantinia takes a delicate bronze colour. The nose is very seductive with aromas of rose petal, rhubarb and quince. The flavours follow through nicely with a hint of toast on the finish. The oak is so well integrated it can not be separate from the wine.
