Selladia Boutari has a limpid sunshine yellow color with complex aromas of citrus fruit, honeysuckle, peach and ripe banana with a twist of dried herbs. It is a white wine destined for further cellaring which exerts a full body and crispy acidity accompanied by a very nice and long aftertaste. A bit aggressive on the mid palate but with a velvet and soft finish. Green apple characters dominate the palate. It pairs greatly with seafood as well pasta with pesto sauce and fresh pine seeds. Enjoy it chilled 10-12°C.
All the fruit for this wine comes from the volcanic and sandy soils of Santorini. The vines are 50-60 years old and are caned pruned trained in a woven basket called “Kouloura”. The average yield is 2500-3500 kg.
The grapes are selected and hand-harvested. They are stored overnight at the winery at very low temperatures to enhance varietal character. They are crushed and destemmed inside the press where cold soaking occurs to achieve maximum extraction of flavor. The must is then clarified by racking off the lees and alcoholic fermentation takes place at 16-20C. This phenolic-rich wine is then left to mature on fine lees with continuous stirring and finally it is bottled.
