This is the bottle to make you fall in love with orange wine. Agrippiotis is a rare, naturally aromatic white grape native to the northern Peloponnese. Here, Tetramythos produce the final wine with extended skin contact, imparting rich texture and flavour, alongside a gorgeous orange hue. It is bold and spicy with enticing notes of exotic fruit and ripe citrus. Though produced 'naturally' this is not a funky wine, but instead a prime example of why orange winemaking can really enhance the natural aromas of a grape. Delicious!
Tetramythos vineyards overlook the Gulf of Corinth in northern Peloponnese. In 150 AD the geographer Pausanias referred to the local villages as ideal for the cultivation of grapes proving the region’s serious vinous history.
The beautifully wild vines are planted in a variety of different soils at altitudes between 650 to 1050 metres. These are true cool-climate vineyards mostly north facing on the slopes of Mount Aroania, where breezes from the Gulf of Corinth help produce fresh and balanced grapes.
The winery is owned by brothers Aristides and Stathis Spanos, together with the highly talented winemaker Panagiotis Papagiannopoulos. Today they farm organically, focusing on the native varieties of Roditis, Mavro Kalavrytino (the ski resort of Kalavryta is just up the road), Agiorgitiko and Malagousia. The Natur range is all made very naturally with a small dose of sulphur.
