Description

ABOUT

Sarris Ungrafted Vines of Robola is a natural white wine produced from family-owned low-yielding vineyards (just 300kgr per acre) located in the “Fagias” area, covering 4 acres planted in early 1980s and consisting entirely from Robola vines, an indigenous variety that is grown exclusively on the island and is recognized world-wide as one of the finest white varieties, possessing the name of the geographic PDO Appellation.

VINEYARD

“Fagias” is the heart of the Robola zone and is a place of wild beauty and magnificent views laying on the steep slopes of Mount Enos at an altitude of about 700 meters, with limestone ground.

The harsh landscape is organized in terraces; the intense sunshine throughout the year; the rich soil (because of the famous forest of black pine that lays just above); the sea breeze that comes from the coast as well as the well drained ground with gravel to absorb the warmth during the day and reflect it at night, are all factors which determine the distinguished style of this exceptional wine.

TASTING NOTES

With a clear bright yellow color, elegant nose with delicate aromas, fruity and minerality taste, balanced acidity and a long aftertaste, every sip of it triggers the excitement and enthusiasm like that of a sparkling wine.
