Saint George Agiorgitiko
This wine hails from the Nemea appellation within the Peloponnese region. One-hundred percent Aghiorghitiko from 20+ year old vines; it is planted in clay soils at 650-meters above sea level. Fermented and macerated in stainless steel vats, it undergoes maloactic fermentation and is then aged in French barriques for 12-months and another six in bottle. It exhibits fine grained tannins, intense raspberry fruit and sweet spices.
The color is bright, deep morello cherry-red. The nose reveals aromas of blackberries, raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of aniseed and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium-bodied wine with elegant structure, balanced acidity and very ripe, elegant tannins. The finish is moderately-long, dominated by red fruits and followed by sweet vanilla and black pepper.
