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).

Tasting note

Vibrant lemon color with green hues. On the nose aromas of flowers and citrus fruits accompanied by botanical undertones. The palate is rich with a bright acidity that brings in balancing freshness. Lingering finish.  

    • Skin contact at 10°C for 6 hours.
    • Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at approx. 16-18°C.
      During fermentation, lees stirring (batonnage) takes place in order to keep the lees in contact with the wine and extract flavor, aroma and texture.
