Blend of two varieties, the Greek indigenous Athiri and Muscat of Alexandria. Athiri is one of the most ancient Greek white grape varieties. The name of the grape indicates its origin from the Island of Santorini, also known as Thira. Athiri grapes have a thin skin and give sweet and fruity juice. It produces wines slightly aromatic, having medium alcoholic content with low acidity. Muscat of Alexandria was planted in Greece in the early 20th century. Its predilection for warmth helped it in adapting perfectly to our region. Still, in recent years, a large percentage of its production has increasingly gone towards producing dry, aromatic white wines and a few sparkling ones.
Organoleptic Analysis: Lemon yellow color, impressive aromas of white flesh fruits and rose petals, delicate acidity and long aftertaste.

The vineyards are found at an altitude of 550-700 m on the north-east Olympus slopes, in Prosilia and Tourtoura.
The soil consists mainly of iron-rich schist. The iron in the soil is an important quality factor, since it regulates the water capacity of the soil. The soil is poor in organic substances. Its structure enables the penetration of the roots into the sub-soil, so that the vine does not suffer from lack of moisture during the summer. The sub-soil is sandy-clayey.The cultivation is dry and organic which yields no more than 5-8 tn/ha.
