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.

Pre-fermentation cold maceration for 2 days, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature, with the wine remaining together with the lees for 8 months with periodic re-stirring.

Maturation: At least 12 months in French oak barrels, 6 months in bottles.

Intense red color with hints of titian. The aroma is complex with predominating scent of small red fruits such as blackberry, cherry, supplemented with a hint of spice, tomato, olive and vanilla. It is full-bodied to the palate, aromatic, rich in tannins and with a lingering and long aftertaste.

Grapes:  70% Xinomavro, 30% Negoskat
