"Palia Varelia" means Old Barrels. It is a natural sweet wine made from local variety Kotsifali from vineyards of low yield, altitude of 450m to 550m near villages Archanes, Agies Paraskies and Stironas of Heraklion.

Winemaking: After careful selection, the grapes are sun-dried for 4-6 days. The vinification takes place at temperatures between 14-18.5o C with addition of selected yeast strains, in order to unfold the unique aromas of the variety. When the desired level of sugars and alcohol is reached, the fermentation is stopped by cooling. The wine matures on the fine lees in French oak for 14 years!

"Palia Varelia" has dark, brick-red color resulting from its long ageing. Sweet and intense aromas of dried fruits, raisins and honey with persisting and opulent aftertaste.
