Akriotou, 'Orivatis', Old Vine Savatiano, 2019, Sterea Ellada, Greece


Made from the Greek native Savatiano grape, this offers a complex and aromatic bouquet of ripe peach, quince, creamy vanilla and an intriguing hint of Turkish delight. A dry wine with perfectly balanced freshness, grapefruit, pepper, ginger with an almost minty ting. Long finish and very satisfying.

In 2015, Vassiliki Akriotou created her first range of wines from a micro-winery in the heart of Greece. The vineyards are situated among the snow-capped mountains at altitudes of 280 to 380 metres above sea level. The wine is packaged under the brand name of Ορειβάτης, which translates as the ‘Mountaineer’. This sublime Savatiano, made from 45 year old vines, is a true expression of this fresh mountainous terroir.
