The name refers to the wine's wonderful movie 'Sideways' (Sideways). The similarities, however, stop at the title, as those who have seen the film will remember the protagonist's distaste for Merlot. On the other hand, 85% Merlot in the blend, the new red Biblia Chora, demonstrates the 'faith' of the estate in most world polyfytemeno grape, a variety that succeeds in the case of 'Sideways', give an international wine specifications.

Deep purple, almost impenetrable color from those predisposing, even visually, for high quality below. The 'sweetness' of perfume on the nose rotates around ripe red fruits, plums, milk chocolate and sweet spices like vanilla and licorice. 'It's all about sweetness of aromas' the English would say, for this style 'nose' the wine. In the mouth the wine is dry, without tension, 'corners' or bursts. Both the Merlot and Agiorgitiko also known for their gentle nature, with tannins that while these youth are in relative abundance is 'velvet' and soft. The aftertaste is fruity aromas and evolving into chocolate and oak. The wine is immediately ready for consumption, but may be further developed for 3 to 5 more years.

A beast! Dark chocolate and figs on the nose, it's dense, full, tannic on the palate. Needs big food now, would cellar it for another two years at least.
