Description

Grapes are carefully hand selected and crushed before being allowed to go through spontaneous fermentation in INOX tanks, without additives, fining or filtration and with very low sulfur level, added before bottling. Following fermentation, the skins are gently pressed, and the wine is aged in French oak barrels for an additional 4 months.

Tasting note

This red wine has hints of violet and a low turbidity. The bouquet is composed of small red fruits, blackcurrant and cherry, liquorice and tomato. The pallet is structured with good tannins, crisp acidity and a long finish.

About the producer

Domaine Chatzivaritis is a 18-hectare estate in Goumenissa, focusing on traditional Greek varieties (Xinomavro, Negoska, Roditis, Malagousia, Muscat and Assyrtico).
Daughter Chloi took over from parents Vagelis and Olga in 2017, having studied oenology in France and Portugal (and worked in Chile and New Zealand), bringing with her passion and experience for low intervention wines and new wine making techniques. The estate now follows environmentally conscious philosophies, aimed at a low interventionist approach to obtain the best quality of grapes while preserving soil fertility.
