Availability: In stock


Dry, Still, Red, Limnio, Mavrotragano, Mavroudi, Ages well, 13% alc.

A top red wine, resulting from three relatively unknown Greek varieties with a great history and an even more dynamic. Velvety and robust at the same time, it is a wine that will maximize style and fun to any meat eating quality.
If a winemaker might think that a blend of Limnio, Mavroudi and Mavrotragano could give one of the most elegant Greek red wines, this is Vangelis Gerovassiliou. The effect of the above vindicated. The Avaton is a wine that will impress beginners and will win the initiated. Possible, but crispy and incredibly cosmopolitan character, is a wine that will perfectly accompany the quality and well cooked red meat.

Review by Francesco (Posted on 12/05/2015)

If you like wine with acidity this is not your wine. Wine round warm and deep . Well done .
Of all Greek wines I tasted this and along with a few others reflects more the territory of origin .

a lovely red: tasted as good in UK as it did on holiday in Greece
