Introducing winemaker Vassiliki Akriotou's first range of wines from her micro-winery in the heart of Greece. Her vineyards are located on the snow-capped mountains some 300m above sea level and inspires the name "Orivatis", which means "Mountaineer". This white wine is made exclusively from the indigenous Savatiano grapes grown in the single vineyard Plataies on 45 year old vines. The fruit is strictly selected, destemmed and crushed with skin contact lasting six hours. The wine is rested on fine lees following fermentation with batonnage adding texture and complexity for three months. The result is a complex, aromatic bouquet of peach, quince, vanilla and Turkish delight. The palate follows with a silky, voluptuous texture, flavours of melon and grapefruit, and a finish of pepper, ginger and wild mint.
Pairs beautifully with: Smoked trout, fresh crab, veal in cream sauce, roast chicken or spicy flavours like Asian-style pan fried duck or Ramen.
Cheese pairing: Swiss Gruyere.
Wine contains sulphites.
