OIKONOMOY LIATIKO SITIA LATE HARVEST
late Harvest / SITIA VLQPRD 2000
Domaine Economou from single-vineyard Liatiko grapes grown in Sitia, eastern Crete, this is a wine whose production method harks back to a more ancient time; it is placed to ferment in barrels in the sun and each summer, the evaporation of water allows for a refermentation to start again in the autumn.Only after six years of re-fermentation is the wine bottled and is likened to old east Mediterranean Malmsey and ancient Greek sweet wines.
The vineyard is organic and fermentation is natural with indigenous yeasts.
Dark, golden reddy brown in the glass, aromatic and oloroso-esque; rich and sweet, raisiny, figgy and aromatic with fresh acidity.
