Estate Gerovassiliou Avaton Epanomi 2011

External Review by We Speak Wine:

A luscious blend of three Greek indigenous red varietals: Limnio, Mavroudi and Mavrotragano. Limnio, mentioned by the philosopher Aristotle as "Limnia ampelos" (=vine from the Greek island Limnos), is the oldest attested Greek grape variety.Entirely fermented in oak tanks, malolactic fermentation ensues in the same tanks and then the wine is aged up to 18 months in new French oak barrels.It has dark ruby colour, an excellent and complex structure. Its blackberry fruit offers spice and depth, finishes dry and is totally unique.This wine is drinking deliciously now served at 16-18 °C yet keep for 15-20 years.Food pairing: interesting partner with hearty stews, savoury dishes, flavored game dishes. - Winery
