Oh my! what a fine wine and much better than we expected. It is a really tasty and full of complex flavours and layers. A delightful bouquet with a wiff of dark fruits and grecian herbs. Transports me back to the Greek Temples if Crete in the hot summer sun..
A real find. wonderful!

A Greek marvel to discover urgently, a model of complexity from the local elite.
The Agiorgitiko, a grape variety of the Peloponnese appellation, produces very large and full-bodied dry red wines. They are also nicknamed the "Blood of Hercules" because of their dark, almost opaque, colour. According to legend, Hercules floored the Nemean lion and its blood stained the vines, giving the Agiorgitiko this intense colour! The wine develops a nose of brilliant fruit that develops on dark chocolate notes and a slightly smoky character. On the palate, blackcurrant stands out in a sweet and very refreshing atmosphere. Fine tannins and a fresh but complex length!
