The new cuvée special & rosé wines are the crown of the Neolea product range. The sparkling wines made according to traditional methods and combine champagne style luxury with the minimalist and pure values of Neolea.
The design reflects this amalgamation. The lower label -made of classic hammered paper- a refined neck with coiffe and deep-cut collarette hints at the beautiful dry aftertaste of the ancient Xinomavro, Assyrtiko and Limniona grapes. Finished with gold foil and refined embossing, this is undeniably a luxury wine. At the same time, the design breaks with an abundance of frills or imitation antique script letters. Neolea stands for enjoying life and seizing the moment. This is reflected in the sharply cut, bold and powerful graphic design.
By traditional method
The fine bubble is created by second fermentation in the bottle. After minimum aging of 15 months on the lees, every bottle is turned about 90 – 120 times by hand – the bottles are disgorged one by one. Next to creating a fine, everlasting bubble the champenoise process produces the wonderful brioche flavor.
Bio-dynamic & organic
The full production process is in total harmony with nature which is about using natural ways to put back into the earth what we take from it. The grapes are certified organic. External inputs like fertilisers are avoided or minimized. The process of certification is in progress and will be visible on the label of the 2020 vintage.
Although Greek wines are often considered new world wines, it’s heritage tells a different story. Over the years many varieties were planted as Greek wine production evolved. Only in recent years cultivation is reaching back to its roots rediscovering unique ancient varieties such as Xinomavro, Assyrtiko and Limniona that are used for the Neolea wines.
Located 650m above sea level at the Amyndeon plateau in the far North-west of Greece, the winery knows a semi continental climate. Cold winters and hot dry summers with cool nights give our wines their expressive acidity.
