Pale straw yellow in colour with golden hue. The bouquet shows intensely aromatic notes of rich pineapple and citrus and finishing with a mineral edge. The palate offers complex and aromatic notes of ripe peach, quince, creamy vanilla and an intriguing hint of Turkish delight. Dry with perfectly balanced freshness, intense notes of grapefruit, pepper, ginger and wild mint lead to a long and spicy finish.

The privately owned small vineyard of ‘Orivatis’ is located in the historic Plataea of Viotia. At the bottom of Mount Kithaironas and at an altitude of 280 to 380m. is located the privately owned family vineyard as well as the cooperating vineyards, which are supervised by Vasiliki Akriotou. In 2015, Vasiliki Akriotou, an oenologist who has been working in a winery of Central Greece since 1997, decides to create her first line of wines, wanting to capture in them both her experience from the long-term observation of the vineyard of Central Greece and her view on her favourite grape varieties. Thus emerges 'Orivatis' (climbers), a series of wines whose name wants to 'declare' the difficult path that one must follow to produce true expression of the terrior.
