Chatzivaritis Estate Mus Xinomavro
Region: Central Macedonia
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.
Xinomavro wines are often compared to Barolo: long ageing, powerful and tannic. Chloi has made something different here- a younger drinking style of Xino with blackcurrant, black cherry, liquorice and a fresh tomato acidity.
