Drama, Macedonia, Greece
Oenogenesis Mataroa Amber is a beautiful summertime Greek orange wine of 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
A Greek take on the Sauvignon Blanc variety, from the most Bordeaux-like region of Greece, Drama, by the hands of the experienced and French trained vigneron and oenologist, Bakis Tsalkos. A few days of skin contact and lack of manipulation give the opportunity for terroir expression comparisons.
