About Ktima Tselepos Amalia Brut

Ktima Tselepos Amalia Brut is an elegant sparkling wine with a light, yellow-green color and fine bubbles with intensity and duration. Aromas of citrus flowers and honey, with a touch of brioche and rose notes. The mouthfeel is characterized by notes of yeast and baked toast complemented by crispy acidity. Early harvest is used to produce the base wine. After cooling, the grapes are pressed whole-clustered. The must is transferred into stainless-steel tanks where it is fermented in low temperatures. The traditional method “champenoise” is used by forcing a second fermentation in the bottle. The wine stays on its lees for 9-12 months before the disgorgement.

About Ktima Tselepos

In 1989, Yiannis and Amalia Tselepos launched an effort to create something new in the field of Greek wines, having only their vision and love for high-quality wine. Today, over 30 years later, their vision for Ktima Tselepos has been fulfilled and one could tell for sure, that they have left their indelible mark on Greek wine.

“Good wines are produced in the winery but fine wines are made in the vineyard” – Yiannis Tselepos

The privately owned vineyard nowadays consists of approximately 65 hectares. Since its foundation, the production of the highest quality wines, while at the same time trying to point out the enormous potential of the indigenous varieties and of each microclimate (terroir).

The Tselepos’ main conviction is that indigenous varieties have all the potential to deliver high-quality wines of great complexity. Moreover, the aim is to preserve and promote the special characteristics of certain international varieties that suit specific vineyards of the estate; for this reason, the estate stresses the emphasis on the production (mainly) of mono-varietal wines.

An immediate goal of the company is the transition towards a more sustainable management of the production, while at the same time, taking specific measures so that they minimize the environmental footprint impact of the estate.

About Moschofilero

Moschofilero is a pink-skinned, aromatic grape variety grown mainly on Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula. Here, it is the main constituent in fresh, light Mantinia wines, whose aromatic character and floral, grapey flavors often bear comparisons to wines made from Traminer and Muscat.

It has been said that there is no single Moschofilero, only many mutations of the ancient “Fileri” grape family from the Peloponnese. The -filero suffix lends itself to many varieties grown in the area that have a similar DNA makeup to Moschofilero.

These range in color from green to black, with considerable differences in sugar content and acidity levels. Moschofilero is by far the most common of these, but even within the variety itself, there is a lot of variation.
