Tasting Notes

Aromas are of golden apples, fennel, baking spices, saline and citrus. Medium plus bodied, yet elegant, this concentrated white showcases peach, white flowers, ripe lemon, pine, herbs, almonds and a touch of fruit peel. It finishes with rich stone fruits and crisp acidity.

Founded in 1919, Domaine Papagiannakos is located in the Attica region of Central Greece, just 18 miles from Athens. Today, the winery is run by the third generation, Vassilis Papagiannakos, who has entered  a new era of modern winemaking while still maintaining the family’s dedication to cultivating and preserving the region’s most famous indigenous grape, Savatiano. Typically, this is the grape used in making Retsina, and indeed, the Papagiannakos family makes an elegant version; however, this bottling is a skin-fermented single vineyard, non-retsina Savatiano.

Attica is surrounded by the sea and enjoys a mild, Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunshine. Vareli is a vineyard with vines over 50 years old, farmed without irrigation. This results in low-yielding vines that produce grapes with rich, concentrated fruit flavors. Grapes were fermented on their skins in stainless steel to start; then the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for six months.
