Aoton Savatiano, PGI Peania, Greece 2019

Regular price £20.74

A bold and powerful Savatiano, with a nutty nose and lots of freshness.

 In the heart of Mesogeia, the middle landplane between Athens and the Eastern coast of Attica, in Spata, Sotiris Gkinis, a dedicated oenologist himself, has revived the 10-ha large family vineyard, which is producing low yield, high-quality fruit. 

The producer is meticulous with the harvest and that is why all their grapes are picked at night to maintain good levels of acidity and finesse in the final wine.

 Tasting Note: The wine clearly display notes of bread dough and toast due to a period of 6 months battonage. Notes of yellow apples, acacia and dried peaches are easily encountered. The palate is rich yet elegant with flavours of grapefruit, white peaches and almonds.
