Vinous Reverie Notes
The vineyards used for the Papagiannakos Old Vine Savatiano are located in southeastern Attica at an altitude of 330 feet. The landscape is cup-shaped with the vineyards facing north, which prevents the grapes from being overexposed to the heat of the sun. The vineyard is over 50-years-old, and is farmed without irrigation, resulting in low-yielding vines that produce grapes with rich, concentrated fruit flavors. The Savatiano grapes are fermented in INOX stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (60°-65°F) in order to preserve the fresh, varietal fruit flavors. Vinified in a dry style, this wine bears the regional Markopoulo PGI appellation designation. Tasting Notes: Bright gold and clear in color, delicate bouquet, aroma of citrus. Medium acidity, long and pleasant aftertaste. Food Pairing: The medium-weight palate and acidity make this a versatile pairing wine. Enjoy with a variety of Mediterranean dishes, fresh salads and seafood, as well as sushi, cheese and poultry.
