Idaia is a family company based in Crete, specialising in producing wines from indigenous grapes, which reflect a true sense of place. The Ocean is made using 100% Thrapshathiri, an indigenous variety, grown in vineyards located at an altitude of 400 to 500 metres above sea level in the Dafnes region. The calcium-rich, clayish soil, the very low yielding vines and the distinctive microclimate, which is formed by the cool Aegean summer breeze, combine to create a unique terroir for viticulture and wine production.

 

A glistening pale lemon-green, this has light aromas of preserved lemons, minerals, fresh foliage and seawater. A fresh palate with greengage fruit, citrus, good weight and lovely lemon acidity on the finish. Stylistically close to a Southern Italian Fiano but with its own unique oceanic flavours, less boozy and very drinkable. To be enjoyed while young and vibrant.

 

“Unoaked. Delicately smoky with a touch of spice and creamy citrus and green fruits, even lime. More spicy on the palate, softly textured with just a slight friction and yet crisp on the finish. A lightly bitter note adds freshness to the persistent finish” - 16.5pts, Jancis Robinson
