Agioritiko Abaton Gold 2007, Tsantali - Greece - Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Mount Athos
“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).
Varietal Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) & Limnio (20%)
Tasting Characteristics: Deep ruby red color with great intensity. Bold aromas of small dark fruits, spices and vanilla on the nose. Dry palate, with well-structured tannins and a full body.
