Winemaker’s note: “The label depicts a scene from a traditional Greek shadow theater play called Karagiozis. Karagiozis is a hero who was always against the rich conquerors and their exploitation of the conquered country’s resources. I see the natural wine scene like Karagiozis, “fighting” against conventional wines which are part of the biggest problem of our world, the deterioration of nature.”

Grape: Xinomavro 100%

Vineyard: 0.5ha plot of clay-sandy schist on slopes around the winery. Eastern exposition, 140m above sea level. Planted in 2009, estate-owned, certified organic.

Making of: Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, maceration on skins for the whole fermentation time. Aged for 12 months in old barrels, stirred on fine lees for 3 months. No protein stabilization, only tartaric stabilization. No fining, no filtration, no added sulfites.

Personality: complex aromas of small red fruits, vanilla, plums, tomato and black olives. Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a long-lasting aftertaste, this is a wine that is perfect with any hearty (red meat) dishes and can nicely age for up to 10 years.
