ICARUS DRY ROSE 2017 750 ml 14% vol.


Natural dry rosé wine from Fokiano varietal (100%) with I.G.P. IKARIA

Opaque, natural red-brown color with orange highlights, and long-lasting legs.

Fruity and complex “nose” of forest fruits and herbs; dominant aromas of watermelon, milk caramel, rose, and herbs.

Unexpected and surprising taste of white pepper, dried fruits, and Ikarian brushwood. Its full body balances
perfectly with its cooling acidity and its high minerality.

Food Pairing: Light dishes, as well as seafood cooked in red sauces. Traditional Greek and Asian cuisine with sweet and sour tastes. Best served at 10-12°C in the summer and 16°C in the winter..

Wine: Dry Rosé.

Varietal composition: Fokiano 100%.

Protected Geographical Indication (PGI): Ikaria

Region/Vine domain: Ikaria/Rahes

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 2 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.
