Where and How?
This comes from organically farmed Assyrtiko in Goumenissa, Greece.
The grapes are meticulously sorted in the vineyard - a hallmark of Chloi's winemaking - after which they are foot stomped and macerated for two days at cold temperatures (this is where the texture comes from). The grapes are then pressed and the juice ferments naturally, ageing in old oak barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with just a tiny amount of sulphites at bottling.
The Winemaker: Chatzivaritis Estate
Chloi Chatzivaryti has an aura of determination and sensitivity. As soon as she begins to speak, the room immediately falls quiet and you find yourself taking in—and hanging onto—every word.
Her energy is found in her wines. They tell a story of self-belief, trust in nature, and open-mindedness. Born from experiments, they are compelling and unlike any wines that Greece has seen before; beautiful in their rainbow shades of almond and nectar. And importantly, there’s not an off-flavour to be found. This is natural wine, Chloi style: pure, precise and moving.
