Named for the oldest appellation in the world, Denthis is a co-op of small family wineries who all grow their grapes with the intention of creating single wines such as ‘Lost.’ It is the creation of natural Greek wine importer Eklektikon, which is doing as much for Greek wine as it is for the natural wine movement by focusing on indigenous varietals in every hidden corner of the country, with organic farming & minimal intervention winemaking. ‘Lost’ is as drinkable as it is aromatic. Floral & fruity, with delicious saline minerality, if a little oily.
