Tasting Notes

Migma Petnat 2020 from Chatzivaritis Estate has a beautiful light pink golden colour and it’s just so slightly cloudy.

The bead is fine and persistent.

On the nose it comes across aromatic and elegant. The bouquet opens with apricot yogurt and white peach, there is jasmine and almond, muscat grape and elderflower.

On the mouth the bubbles are fine and plenty. It’s round and fulfilling with a lovely freshness.

On the palate the aromatic notes found on the nose are there too particularly the muscat grape, apricot and fresh almond.

The finish is long and very pleasant.

How it's made

Skin maceration takes place for Muscat over 4 days before the juices from the 2 varieties are put together and spontaneous co-fermentation is allowed to take place between Muscat and Malagousia in INOX tanks.

No additions, fining or filtering occur.

The wine is bottled while fermenting in order to finish the alcoholic fermentation in the bottle, making it naturally sparkling.

It remains in contact with the lees for 6 months in the bottle and then it is manually disgorged. No sulphur is added.

Malagousia

Malagousia (aka Malagouzia) is a white Greek wine grape.

In the past it risked extinction. In fact, Malagousia was resurrected only in the 70s and 80s did thanks to Vassilis Logothetis, a professor of oenology, and Vangelis Gerovassiliou, one of his students.

If the Gerovassiliou sounds familiar, it’s because Vangelis is now the owner of one of the best known wine estates in Greece. Of course he produces his own Malagousia!
