Mater Natura is the naming scheme of Vasilis Vaimakis’ natural and zero-added-sulfite Greek wine series, where the vinifications and the numbers don’t repeat themselves. Mater Natura 4 is an almost zero-sulfite Xinomavro, which shows the raw dynamic of, perhaps, the most impressive red Greek variety, with the greatest ageability and phenolic richness.
