Madari Hills Collection Ξυνιστέρι

Profile

 

The wine’s clean, distinctive, varietal character is the result of many factors which have excellently combined for the production of Madari Hills Collection Xynisteri. The variety is cultivated in the steep, unwelcoming slopes of the Madari mountain, which is a real challenge.

Having chosen the most resilient, robust vines of the variety, we take maximum advantage of the special mesoclimate to secure the harvest of an excellent, high wine-making value fruit. The main quality factors are the age of the plants, the altitude of the vineyards, the low production per plant, the climate and geological attributes, particularly slow maturing and multiformity. We aim to create a white wine, distinguished for its character, nerve, and complexity.
