Varietal composition: Fokiano 100%.

Protected Geographical Indication (PGI): Ikaria

Vinification: Destemming without pressing. The grape juice remains with the pomace for 3 hours. After that, it is pressed and cold soaked and then it is fermented in a controlled environment inside a closed stainless steel tank at a temperature lower than 12°C. After the end of the fermentation and the primary removal of sediment, the wine is stirred with its noble lees every 10 days for 3 months until it is finally bottled.

Aging: Icarus rosé is susceptible to aging of at least 10 years. Orange-red highlights increase while its nose becomes less vibrant. While aging its flavor characteristics improve, concluding to blackberry marmalade. Most of its crisp remains as well as its vivid aftertaste.
