In 2010 our winery planted in Pano Arodes village new Mataro and Shiraz vineyards. At the winery we know them by their plot numbers 128, 129, 276 and 279. The grapes from these vineyards were always blended with grapes from several other plots to produce Fikardos Cab. Mataro. Shiraz red. In 2018 we decided to isolate some of the grapes and produce a wine entirely from them. This is our first trial wine and a good indicator of what to expect in the future.
