Kir Yianni Paranga 2016

Availability: In stock

€16.95

Quick Overview

Paranga is a refreshing and jammy combination: a supple Merlot in the background with a touch of a very spicy Syrah under the spell of a light and more easy-to-drink Xinomavro. Its light ruby red color and herbal undertones are alluring. Its remarkable acidity gives rise to a complex bouquet of cinnamon, clove, and green pepper, and a long finish. It is made to be consumed young. Serve it cool as an aperitif or along with barbeque and spicy food in general.

Details

The grapes come from individual contract farmers from the viticultural area of Agios Panteleimon in Florina in Northwestern Greece that lies at an altitude of 600 meters. The usual grape yield does not exceed 40 hl/he. The soil is sandy and poor, thus offering the possibility of producing wines of good quality and rich aromas. The microclimate of the region is characterised by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighbouring lakes contribute to the existence of a mild continental climate.

Grapes are hand-picked and selected on a sorting table prior to crush. For each variety the must is cold soaked at 11-12°C in a reductive environment for 2-5 days depending on the quality of the grapes. Fermentation takes place at 20-22°C, followed by malolactic fermentation in tank. During the first three months of the year, the lees are stirred twice a week (batonnage), in order to achieve a fuller body. After the final blend the wine is bottled, usually in April after the harvest. The winemaker's main objective is to achieve maximum fruit extraction, while preserving a good level of acidity.
