Sclavos Metageitnion 2014
Cephalonia , Greece

Metageitnion, a name that refers to the second month of the Attica calendar (the period from late July to late August) is Sclavos most natural effort. Grapes are sourced from 100 years old Vostilidi vines, an indigenous variety producing powerful and ripe wines.Yields are tiny, less than 20 hl/ha where winemaking is oxidative yet without skin contact. No fining, no filtration, no added SO2 define minimal intervention. Sclavos is very serious about his philosophy about biodynamics which he has embraced without certification for the moment. Metageitnion which is fermented and matured in old oak is classified as organic wine. Colour is amber gold with evident oxidative winemaking resulting in honeyed, candied fruit aromas with a touch of flowers. Quite nutty as well. Palate is medium full bodied, concentrated with depth of fruit and light tannins at the end. Needs decanting and some time in the glass and improves. An intriguing wine for the open minded.
