Description

Grapes are carefully hand selected and lightly pressed. Spontaneous fermentation is allowed to take place in stainless steel tanks, with no additives, fining or filtration, and with very low sulfur content added before bottling. Following fermentation, the wine stays with the lees in the tank for 4 months.

Tasting note

This white wine has golden tones and a low level of turbidity. In the nose it is impressive and intense, with aromas of citrus, vanilla, toasted wood and small white flowers. The mouth is very complex with crisp acidity, balanced astringency 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.
