Karavitakis Winery Liatiko Indigenous Yeast 75cl
A Liatiko with 94pts that reminiscent of Pinot Noir! It is a fascinating red wine, aromatic, refined, with light body and delicate tanins, but showing complexity and elegance.The old, ungrafted vines gave their best fruit and Nikos's magic hand did all the rest! That's why it also collected 94pts! Simply amazing!
ikos Karavitakis, wanting to explore the potential of Cretan varieties and the old vines that the Cretan vineyard hides, decided to deal with a new project, the project of Indigenous Yeast. For this project he scoured the whole island and found old and ungrafted vines from Kotsifali and Liatiko and let the terroir do its job. What do we mean by that? Indigenous yeasts, minimal filtration and discreet use of oak (only 9 months for Liatiko), so that the characteristics of each variety shine. Liatiko Indigenous Yeast is the finest wine of the project as it emphasizes the elegant side of the variety, a side that is reminiscent of Pinot Noir and we really love it. Slightly chilled, it is one of the reds that will accompany you during summer but also all year round, if its 1000 bottles last that long.
