In crafting the 'Apla' Dry Rose, Oenops Wines embraces a meticulous viticulture and winemaking process that mirrors the winery's commitment to excellence. The grapes, chilled to perfection at 5°C, undergo a delicate sorting and pressing, with a discerning percentage of whole clusters enhancing the complexity of the juice. The subsequent fermentation in stainless steel and concrete tanks, preserving the distinct identity of each vineyard plot, paves the way for an aging process on the fine lees spanning 2 to 4 months, culminating in a wine ready to capture the imagination upon bottling.

The sensory journey of the 'Apla' Dry Rose is marked by its light salmon hue, a prelude to the intricate dance of aromas that follow. A bouquet of tangerine, orange, strawberries, and white cherries unfolds, leading to Xinomavro's signature whisper of tomato, adding a layer of intrigue. On the palate, this full-bodied rose reveals a tapestry of strawberries and raspberries, culminating in a crisp, refreshing finish that invites sip after sip.
