Opening with a prickle of spritz, this Agiorgitiko is bright sour cherry, plum and blackcurrant on an eager palate. The palate is silky, though tannins are powdery and dark cocoa dusted to a snappy, shorter finish. Sourced from deep clay soiled mountainous vineyards in Asprokambos and Psari, in Nemea, this was whole cluster fermented with 2 weeks on the skins, prior to 6 months in tank before bottling.
Deep ruby in colour with a cedary nose of vanilla oak, ripe plum, light spicy, floral, graphite note; medium-bodied, dry, red plum flavour with grainy tannins; nicely integrated oak and a firm tannic finish.
Bright, pale straw colour; minerally, herbaceous, a bouquet of green plums with a graphite note; medium-bodied, crisply dry, green plum and grapefruit flavours with a light floral note; lively acidic finish. A bargain at the price.
Medium straw in colour with a minerally, spicy, leesy, apple-pear bouquet; medium-bodied, dry, lemony, crab apple flavour with a minerally, slightly bitter finish.
Light straw in colour, this fragrant wine has a bouquet of orange blossom and musk melon. Medium-light in body, it presents a dry flavour of green melon with tangy, lemony acidity which gives the wine a long, lingering finish. Great value.
This wine continues to be one of Greece’s greatest red wine values — period! Medium-bodied and linear, there is a profile of cherry, plum, tar, herbs, tomato paste, vanilla and dried earth. Great length and some gritty tannins make for an ideal pairing with a braised lamb shank or a medium rare NY Strip! Buy it by the case and enjoy until 2022.
