Producer Note
In 2015, Vassiliki Akriotou created her first range of wines from a micro-winery in the
heart of Greece. The vineyards are situated among the snow-capped mountains at
altitudes of 280 to 380 metres above sea level. The wine is packaged under the
brand name of Ορειβάτης, which translates as the ‘Mountaineer’. This sublime
Savatiano, made from 45 year old vines, is a true expression of this fresh
mountainous terroir.


Vineyard
The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard called ‘Plataies’, located in Plataea,
a small village at the foot of the Kitheronas Mountain, in Central Greece. The
vineyard is situated at an altitude of 250 to 320 metres elevation and during the
autumn and winter months cool air masses blow down from the mountains, carrying
dew which refreshes the vineyard with crucial humidity. Cold winters, hot summers
and long, dry autumns combine with long periods of sunshine to enable the grapes
to reach excellent maturity and complexity. The Savatiano variety is suited to the hot,
dry climate as it has excellent drought resistant properties. The grapes for this wine
come from old vines of 40 to 60 years, which are pruned according to the traditional
Gobelet style and produce low yields of concentrated fruit.


Winemaking
The fruit underwent strict selection in the vineyard and again in the cellar. The grapes
were destemmed, crushed and the free-run must was cold macerated with skin
contact for six hours. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled
temperatures of 14°C in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit. The wine
was rested on its fine lees, with bâtonnage adding texture and complexity for three
months.


Tasting Note
Made from the native Savatiano grape, this offers a complex and aromatic bouquet
of ripe peach, quince, creamy vanilla and an intriguing hint of Turkish delight. Dry
with perfectly balanced freshness, intense notes of grapefruit, pepper, ginger and
wild mint lead to a long and spicy finish.
