Migma Petnat Muscat and Malagousia, Domaine Chatzivaritis, Goumenissa, Kilkis 2020
Domaine Chatzivaritis, Goumenissa, Kilkis
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 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.
Very careful selection of grapes, 4 days cold maceration followed by spontaneously fermentation. The fermenting must is then bottled to produce a natural sparkling wine in the Pétillant Naturel (PetNat) style. After 6 months in the bottle on the lees, they are degorged by hand. No sulphur is added.
Very fruity nose with lots of peach and elderflower aromas, fine bubbles and a long finish.
Grapes: 50% Muscat, 50% Malagousia
