An impressive and excellent example of the age worthiness of Xinomavro based wines, and with no added sulfur. The natural acidity and tannic structure of these grapes helped this wine age gracefully over these 14 years. Earthy aromatics of clay and potting soil. Nicely developed notes of preserved/sun-dried tomato, braised mushroom, plum and balsamic. Long, finish of clove and dried red berries. We recommend decanting for about an hour before drinking.

Tatsis was one of the first producers to doggedly stand behind Greek grape varieties and older, natural winemaking techniques in Macedonia. When Periklis and Stagios Tatsis joined their father in the vineyards in the late 1990s, there were probably only four or five other winemakers who were working like they did. The Tatsis brothers really embody the idea that looking to the past is the way forward. They are working with organic and Biodynamic methods and using low sulfur, if any.
