AGIORITIKO ABATON red

 

APPELLATION: Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Mount Athos

TYPE: Red dry wine

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: Xinomavro (50%), Grenache (30%) & Limnio (20%)

“Abaton” in Greek means “untrodden”. The term has been linked with the untrodden chamber of the church-the altar. The most well-known “Abaton” in Greece is holy Mount Athos. Abaton signifies the “untrodden” nature of Mount Athos, the spiritual way of life and the purity of the land.

“Agioritiko” means something originated from Agio Oros (Mount Athos). It has nothing to do with the variety of Agiorgitiko (Saint George).
