From the importer: Another young winery founded in 1999 by the brothers Aristides and Eustatius Stathios, it offers a splendid range of impeccably made wines from both indigenous and international varietals at improbably low prices. The startling quality is greatly attributable to their stellar wine-maker, Panagiotis Pappagiannopoulos. The mindboggling vineyards rise to elevations of 1000 meters, ensuring that diurnal temperature range that is so often the lodestone of quality in Greece. Enjoying unique limestone soils and making wines only from free-run juice, Tetramythos offers a finesse and purity that are unexpected at this price level. The “Natural” series wines are made according to some biodynamic principles e.g. the whites are harvested, pressed and bottled on flower days, and the reds on fruit days.
What a great and often under-rated grape Roditis is. Witness this beautiful wine, endowed with uncommon weight and intensity for its modest price-tag. Scented and fine, it offers a honied driness underpinned by firm acidity that confers a certain seriousness, while nonetheless offering a generous measure of pure vinous pleasure. Such is the brothers’ success, that they sell out quickly each vintage.
