This is an extremely rare varietal found only in the Western Peloponnese, and is old enough to be referenced by Homer!

 

The Tinaktorogos is a sub-variety of the Asproudes grape, and produces a transparent, white wine with hints of green and yellow in the glass. Indigenous to Ancient Olympia, the varietal has been uniquely cultivated by the Brintzikis for the last 23 years. A unique characteristic of this variety is that during the flowering period, it casts many flowers and has a green harvest. 

 

As far as winemaking, the grapes were destemmed and crushed before the press. 100% natural fermentation at 18°C in stainless steel tanks for almost 10 days. Maturation on the lees for two months, and batonnage once per week, yield a complex wine of medium body, balanced acidity and a rich and delicate finish.

 

The wine is organic and made with a zero carbon footprint.
