Dry, Still, Red, Agiorgitiko, Ages well
A wonderful Nemea, by Sotiris Ayvalis, who represents the new ‘blood’ of the Ayvalis winery, with studies in Burgundy, comes to give another dimension to Agiorgitiko and to conquer us. The concentrated character of the overripe grapes, the low yields and the masterful use of the barrel, sends the "Le Sang de la Pierre'' straight to the top
Its color is deep ruby, with several purple highlights that indicate its youth. Complex aromas of ripe fruits such as cherry and strawberry, sweet spices reminiscent of nutmeg and cinnamon, caramel, chocolate with beautiful notes of vanilla that the wine acquires from ripening for 14-16 months in French oak barrels. In the mouth it is concentrated, with high but very well incorporated alcohol, velvety tannins, delicious fruity taste that takes off with hints of paprika at the end. It will enchant you whether you drink it now or after a few years. It is a wine of very small production, so hurry up!

|Producer's Description|| Type: b> Red dry wine
Variety: b> 50% Syrah, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
Location: b> Nemea
Character: b> Soft, with aromas of red fruit and tobacco and intensely tannic nature.
Combination: b> Red meat cooked or baked, such as beef in a pot.
Selecting two internationally acclaimed varieties polytaxidefmenes who have given handwriting samples of fine wines in the old and the new world, we decided to separate the winemaking Sauvignon Cabernet with Syrah. After completion of winemaking we made a Blend wine thus reviving an old "Borntoleziki" practice.
The result highly encouraging. The deep purple color, complex bouquet of black and green pepper with ripe black fruit. Plum, black cherry and berry surrounded by tobacco and mocha.
The mouth rugged untamed almost ripe tannins with ripe fruit with a long epigefsi. Great aging potential for several years.
