Aplo is one of the 3 natural vintages of Chloé Chatzivaritis, made from organic Assyrtiko grapes. The bunches are meticulously hand-picked, pressed, and then sent to cold pre-fermentation for 2 days before spontaneous fermentation using indigenous yeasts in old French oak barrels of at least 6 wines. After fermentation, the wine will remain in these same barrels for 3 months and then 6 months in the bottle before marketing.
Aplo reveals intense notes of citrus, white fruits, white flowers and some honeyed notes. On the palate, it is full-bodied with a beautiful roundness and a light acidity that awakens the taste buds.
With its beautiful structure, it will accompany Asian dishes with a lot of sweet spices.
The Chatzivaritis estate owns 12 hectares of organic vineyard in the north of Greece and offers a range of wines made mainly from grape varieties endemic to Greece: Xinomavro, Roditis, Negoska, Assyrtiko! It all started with love... when Vagelis Chatzivaritis met his future wife Olga Iakovidou in 1981. She was originally from Goumenissa, a place with a long wine-growing tradition. Being himself a wine lover and a man who also enjoyed gastronomy and the simple pleasures of life, he began to make his own wine, enjoying the company of his good friends and close relatives. The local narrative says that the indigenous Greek varieties of Xinomavro and Negoska, from which the P.D.O. Goumenissa Chatzivaritis is produced, was the wine of choice of Philip, King of Macedonia, father of Alexander the Great.
