A highly aromatic Greek skin-contact wine. Notes of stonefruit like apricot and peach on the nose. On the palate, lemon & elderflower. Slightly tea-like quality. Dry and crisp and super tasty.
3 weeks on skins, zero-zero, raised in stainless steel, unfined and unfiltered.
Savatiano is perhaps the most historic variety dating back to 2500 years and most planted variety in Greece due to its resistance to draught and disease. However, because traditionally it had been used alongside other varieties in blend wines and also for the traditional appellation wine Retsina, it had not been properly explored until recently. Savatiano gives robust wines of surprising character that are both beautifully drunk in their youth but that also age remarkably well. It is now building a reputation as a truly unique variety of great finesse offering citrus and tropical fruits aromas as well as mineral undertones.
