Regular price £12.99
Agiorghitiko (90%) / Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
Made from a blend of indigenous Greek grape Agiorghitiko with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Agiorghitiko is thought to be one of Greece`s oldest varieties and is often referred to as `the blood of Heracles`, the grapes dark red juice giving it that distinctive moniker. Fermented in stainless steel vats with a short maceration so as to not extract too much colour and tannin followed by a short ageing period in vat on the fine lees. The resulting wine has plenty of fruit, ripe black cherries, damson and juicy blackberries combine with a fresh acidity and supple tannins making this an eminently drinkable wine with a sublte dried herb note on the finish.
