- Low stock - 17 items left
PRODUCER: The brothers Aristides and Stathis Spanos, having grown in this area, found it absolutely natural to be involved in grape growing and wine production early in their lives.
They Aborted organic farming and despite their other activities, the love for the vineyards and wine led them to more dynamic activity.
In 1999 they meet Panagiotis Papagiannopoulos, an oenologist , who also comes from the area, and they produce the first bottles of tetramythos. In the years that follow new vineyards are planted and in 2003 starts the construction of a tasteful winery which is completed in 2004.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are handpicked and crushed. Fermentation is spontaneous, followed by 2 weeks on skins before pressing; only the free-run juice is used. The wine ages in 5000l oak tanks for 5 months. The wine is then bottled unfiltered and unfined with minimal sulphur use.
TASTING NOTES: Light ruby in the glass, the nose is elegantly perfumed. The wine gives rich flavours of cherry, strawberry and spicy liquorice as well as more smoky, earthy notes. Refreshing on the palate, with gentle tannins and a long attractive finish.
