Description
Agios Chronos White

Winemaking: Harvest of grapes and placement in a cooling chamber for 24 hours. Classic White Vinification.6 months maturation in oak French barrers (white smoked )225lt. The malolactic fermentation takes place into the barrel, after the alcoholic fermentation . A battonage is occurred once a month.
Winetasting: Pale lemon colour with gold tints. On the nose the wine is dominated by ripe apricot and white peach aromas, while on the backround a light sense of oak is revealed gently. The palate is dry and round. The aromatic explosion of the yellow, but not overripen citrus fruits, the nectar sense and the elegant aromas by the oak maturation, appears at first. Then, the dry nuts and the moderate acidity create an impressive tasty result . The aftertaste is long, fruity and complex.

Avantis Estate

Avantes was the first prehistoric greek tribe that settles in Euboea, mainly around two towns – Chalkis and Eretria – in the eras between 2100 – 1900 B.C. According to a myth they were named after nymph Ava.

They were warriors and had participated in the Trojan War under the command of Helephinor, their leader. In his epic poem ‘Iliad’ Homer refers to Avantes as follows: “Brave Avantes inhabitants of Euboea coming from Chalkis, Eretria as well as grape producing Istiea and Kirinthos by the sea and even high up from Dion, Karistos and Stira, all were commanded by Helephinor, fearless in battle, strong leader of theirs. Fast, long haired warriors carrying long spears, always willing to attack and beat the enemy.
