Tasting Notes

Migma PetNat Rosé 2020 from Chatzivaritis Estate has a lovely copper colour with a pink blush.

The beam is very fine and very persistent.

On the nose Migma PetNat Rosé is fragrant yet subtle with notes of toasted bread and then raspberry yogurt and wild strawberries. It then shows a citrus side with candied mandarin peel and pink grapefruit and then a rounder marzipan note.

The mouthfeel is very round. On the palate it’s surprisingly savoury but it is then balanced by a soft marzipan note and a subtle, elegant rose petal note.

The finish is lovely and long.

How it's made

Maceration takes place over few hours in the press before spontaneous co-fermentation is allowed to take place between Negoska and Xinomavro grapes 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 sulfur is added.

Xinomavro

Xinomavro is a red grape variety from Greece. The name translates to sour-black (“xino” = sour and “mavro” = black).

This grape is widely grown in Greece. It can produce pretty much any type of wine, from rosé to white sparkling wine to red, good-aging wine!

Because of its character, Xinomavro is often compared to Pinot Noir or Nebbiolo. Just like Pinot Noir, it is too a quite demanding grape variety. The terroir and climatic conditions need to be just right for it. Also, the yields per hectare must be kept low to allow Xinomavro to give the best of itself!

Since recent years some attempts of cultivating Xinomavro have been made in Gansu province, in north-central China.
