Mandilaria 80%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%. From organic vineyards. Night harvest. Remains with the fine lees for 10 months and "Batonnage" method is applied. Light, fresh style with aromas of red fruits and Mediterranean herbs. Medium-bodied, with moderate acidity levels and a fruity forward character, not very complex but inviting. Good balance and satisfying length.
“Aoton” in ancient Greek defines the “finest specimen of its class” and represents a winery dedicated to the production of fine wines in the same location where three generations ago, the family winery “Patitiri” was the community’s local press of grapes from the surrounding vineyards. In the heart of Mesogeia, the middle landplane between Athens and the Eastern coast of Attica, in Spata, Sotiris Gkinis, a dedicated oenologist himself, has revived the 10-ha large family vineyard, which is producing low yield, high-quality fruit. His wines are made exclusively from the three local varieties: Savatiano, Roditis and Mandelaria and have become highly praised by the discerning palates.
