History of the label: Stalisma is when a shepherd and his herd are taking a rest in a shady place on a summer afternoon where a cool breeze comes through. Our stalisma wines are like that. They are refreshing, just like the cool fresh air during the hot summer days.
Really profound nice rose color. The nose is the characteristic of Xinomavro variety:sun dried tomatoes and black olives.Hints of strawberry and blackberry complete this impressive bouquet. In the mouth, rich, with intense and noticeable but well balanced acidity. At the end, the long persistent fruity aftertaste with little residual sugar leaves an impressive ‘greek summer’ sensation.

The wine ferments with its indigenous yeasts, avoiding the heavy oenological operations and the oenological substances. After the fermentation we put the wine in old barrels for 2 months and we do battonage with its own fine-lees.We don’t do protein stabilization,only tartrate stabilization.We are bottling the wine next spring where we add some sulfites (25ppm total).
Potential age up to 3 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 12-16ο C.
Incredible combination with Mediterranean vegetable dishes(briam, stuffed tomatoes, imam, moussaka),beef with red sause, pitza with mushrooms.Its nice to drink also with fruits and some cheeses.
