Domaine Papagiannakos Natural Savatiano 2019
A delicious and well rounded natural wine made without sulphites, pesticides or fertilisers
Floral, herbal and citrus aromas with a slight yeasty note. The palate is rounded and soft with hay, green plum and a touch of white spice and salinity on the finish.
Produced from 60-year old unirrigated Savatiano bush vines. Cultivation of the vineyard is manual with low intervention. Pesticides and fertlisers are not used. Harvesting takes place mid-September. Grapes are picked in the early morning (before 8.30am) and taken to the winery in plastic crates. There is no mechanical pressing - instead the free run juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks. Spontaneous, natural yeast fermentation takes place and typically lasts for around 25 days. No sulphites are added, and the wine is bottled without filtration.
