48 hours' skin contact. 25% barrel fermented, one American barrel, one was very expensive and French (€1000 Quintessence, Fleur de Quintessence) and one acacia. According to owner/winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, acacia doesn’t give you woody flavours like oak but is more floral. But it does give you tannins and the oxidative effect, creating a solid phenolic base in an acidic wine. Respects the fruit. But this only works if the barrel is new. In the second year it gives you oxygenation but not tannins.
