The Black Sheep, an eccentric name for a product that stresses out its diversity and particularity. This is an elegant wine that refers to the rosé wines of Provence. Its thoroughly modern philosophy is evident from its contemporary appearance and its screw cap. It is produced at the Mackedon Winery at Platanotopos, Kavala, while the vineyards are found in a small distance.
The special vinification of the Black Sheep rosé begins with the early harvest of grapes highlighting the particular characteristics of both Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon varieties.

Rosé vinification begins with the early harvest of the grapes of the two varieties Syrah-Cabernet Sauv. We let the marc grapes and the juice for a small period of time into the press, in order to take the willing color. Then we lightly press them with the vacuum press. Fermentation takes place at controlled low temperatures.
