Akrathos Wines Mixed Case

Akrathos Wines Mixed Case
ref. AKRAMIXED

Akrathos means "near Athos" and one can, indeed, see that 2033 metre high holy mountain from its vineyards. We're in Halkidiki in central Macedonia here where the climate is very much maritime, with the sea's influence moderating summer torridity. [The photo shows Estate Manager Babis Bekris, Caspar Bowes, and Mark Rachovides, Owner.]

Akrathos' organic vineyards were planted around 2011 and major on the white Assyrtiko, plus red varieties in the form of Agiorgitiko and Xinomavro. Vineyards soils (shallow sandy loam with slate subsoil) are full of minerals and vines are planted at altitude (550-700m) meaning that the Assyrtiko here is the last to be picked in Greece. This is a brand new winery and this is their first commercialised vintage. 

We are very excited by this winery and the wines it is already producing in this its debut vintage, as are Jancis Robinson, Joanna Simon and Ronan Sayburn, Head Sommelier at 67 Pall Mall

The Assyrtiko is truly stunning and the best bottles of these reds are extremely good. However, we have found some bottle variation in the reds (NOT the white) this first vintage as they were not all bottled at the estate. We are therefore offering an introductory mixed case with a significant discount to introduce our clients to the three debut wines from this exciting new estate:

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY MIXED CASE containing 6 bottles 2016 Assyrtiko, 3 bottles 2015 Xinomavro, 3 bottles 2015 Philosopher.
