'Migma' Pét-Nat 2019
A Wine That
makes you want to get up and go (it doesn't matter where - Dancing? Gardening? Baking?) - it's an "energy tonic" the kind of wine that wakes you up and excites you. Think a salty tang like licking the edge of a glass housing a Margarita. Yum.

Where and How?
This is a partnership wine between Chloi and her Swedish winemaker friend who she studied with, Tobias Tullberg, who works at Hambledon winery in the UK. This is 65% Muscat, 25% Malagouzia and 10% Xinomavro, organically farmed in the Goumenissa region of Greece.
The grapes are meticulously sorted in the vineyard - a hallmark of Chloi's winemaking - after which the grapes are macerated for four days at cold temperatures. The juice then begins its natural fermentation, and is bottled while still fermenting to create a pét-nat. After six months in the bottle on the lees, the bottles are disgorged by hand. No added sulpites.
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.
