Why do we love it?

We love it for its character. Because each time Idylle d’ Achinos of La Tour Melas reaches our glasses we are enormously overtaken by the way it starts slow and evolves over time. 

The secret? Exhaustive diligence in the vineyard. Already by the time of harvest completion they vinegrowers start taking actions to prepare for the next.

Just outside the village Achinos in Fthiotida, Kyros Melas created a winery that has nothing to envy from renowned wineries of France. Sacrificing production for the sake of quality, he and his team make the 100 years old vines reach their limits by limiting their productivity to a minimum. Biodynamic, organic farming, and dense planting harden plants to unprecedented concentration levels with their energy taking care of just a few bunches per vine.

For Idylle d 'Achinos, three varieties equally divided entangled in a large romance from those that are not easy to overcome. Grenache, Syrah, and Agiorgitiko in equal parts are vinified with a very short extraction time adding up to a wine overwhelmed with finesse.

French, Greek, call it what you want. It is really hard to find so much of it concentrated in a glass!

Tastes Like

Pale, almost transparent, salmon-pink in the glass.

Smooth, elegant nose with dominant notes of juicy, ripe cherries and strawberries. Red apple, sanguine, and orange blossom gradually reveal themselves.

The mouth is moderate (+) volume with crisp acidity. Pomegranate, strawberry, cherries, peach, pink grapefruit, citron and candied apple create a special profile for a rosé wine, very far from what we are used to. The long finish with citrus notes boosts the palate.
