Akriotou, Erimitis White, The Hermit

Vasiliki Akriotou is an oenologist with over 20 years’ experience in the wine industry. In 2015, she created her first range of wines from a micro-winery in the heart of Greece, which reflected her philosophy of winemaking. The vineyards are situated among the snow-capped mountains at altitudes of 280 to 380 metres above sea level This premium wine is made from old vines of native grapes, is a true expression of this fresh mountainous terroir.

The grapes are sourced from Plataea, a small village at the foot of the Kitheronas Mountain, in Central Greece. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 250 to 320. This wine is a blend of native varieties: Savatiano, Assyrtiko and Aidani, which are suited to the hot, dry climate as they have good drought resistant properties.

The three wines were deftly blended and matured in stainless steel tanks for a total of 10 months, during which bâtonnage took place twice weekly for three months, reducing to once a fortnight for seven months, imbuing the wine with a lovely texture.

Erimitis White has a discreet nose which gradually unfolds to reveal its fruity character, with peach, bergamot, lemon, citrus, pear and white flower aromas complemented by buttery overtones. Textured and rich, with the flavours echoed from the nose and a refreshing citrus note that lasts on the finish.
