Winemaker Notes

Our main goal with our “Estate” blend is to attain balance between fruit, acidity, and ripeness of tannins. As an original combination of the cosmopolitan Merlot with the “noble” indigenous grape variety, Xinomavro, Kir-Yianni Estate is distinguished by its harmony. A very good year in 2007 led to full ripeness resulting in a full body with phenolic richness. The “Estate’s”discrete acidity highlights the complex aromas and the lasting aftertaste. It is ready to be enjoyed upon release, but will also age gracefully as the red-fruit bouquet shall evolve secondary characteristics, like dried tomato, cigar-box.
