Dry, Still, Red, Syrah, Limnio, Pamidi, Keep for 2-3 years, 14% alc.
According to Greek mythology, Hercules built the city of Abdera in Thrace in memory of his friend, Abdera, when he was killed in battle with the wild horses of the king of Thrace, Diomedes. This delicious red wine that pulsates with liveliness, fruit and spicy elements is named after this legend. The oldest Greek variety, Limnio, puts its fruity characteristics and kindness, the Thracian grape Pamidi the extroverted character and the international Syrah the structure and the spice profile in a wine that is pleasantly enjoyed in winter and summer.
Its color is bright ruby. Its aroma is full of vitality with fresh fruits such as cherry and raspberry dominating and complemented by notes of cocoa, violet, vanilla and sweet spices. In the mouth it is velvety with balanced acidity and a nice spicy aftertaste that lasts.

Producer Vourvoukelis Estate
Producer's Description This wine was dedicated to the name "Abderos", son of the god Hermes from Opounta of Locri. According to Greek mythology, the demigod Hercules built the city of Abdera in Thrace in memory of his friend, Abdera, when he was killed in battle with the wild horses of the king of Thrace, Diomedes. The label typically depicts the wild horse of Thrace. It is a special blend of two Greek ones (the oldest Greek variety, Limnio, meets the rare Pamidi) and a foreign variety (Syrah from France). Syrah gives primary aromas of red fruit (freshness) while Lemnio with a passage of barrel for 8-12 months gives peppery aromas as well as notes of cocoa and tobacco. The mouth is soft, with soft tannins and moderate acidity. A wine full of a pleasant finish.
