Echo (Ἡχῶ in Greek) is the mythological nymph that lost her voice and her intimate expression. It is the metaphorical figure and explanation of an acoustic phenomenon. In this project, ēkhô (ἠχῶ written in phonetic alphabet) is linked with the sense of reflection. It concerns the metaphorical connection to the past, the untold expression of an archetypal voice and a current snapshot of a constant flow. Historic lands, heroic viticulture, indigenous varieties and old vines are the core of this effort towards a highlighting journey into the depth of the Greek vineyards and its multiple characters. The grapes for the Ēkhô Rosé are sourced from a vineyard about 1km from the sea at about 200m altitude in northern Naxos. The wine is a field blend of the black variety Fokiano and some inclusion of the unknown white variety Bastardiko sourced from ungrafted bush vines that are about 50 years old. The wine was aged on its lees for 10 months, using acacia barrels for 1/3 of the wine. Total production for this wine was 1250 bottles. A sweet, floral nose with oak notes hovering in the background. Aromas of cherries, strawberries and peaches. A lively palate with lovely acidity and a tiny amount of tannins that give it character and structure. A gastronomic and highly individual rosé.
