Chatzivaritis Estate Goumenissa
Region: Central Macedonia
Grapes: Xinomavro, Negoska
Chloi and her father run the Chatzivaritis Estate together in the PDO of Goumenissa, just east of Naoussa in Northern Greece. All grapes are grown organically, with Chloi also practising low intervention winemaking on her label with only a small amount of SO2 added at bottling.
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 6 months in bottles this is a big wine. Similar to Barolo in style with powerful tannins, rich dark fruits, earthy spice and sun-dried tomato notes.
