    I got given this at Christmas.Greek wine cellars was founded by the Kourtaki family in the 19th century and they still own it and it is now Greece's largest wine producer and exporter.The wine is made near the town of Patras from the Mavrodaphne grape,a variety that goes back to antiquity and is unique to Greece.The wine is 15%ABV as it is slightly fortified and has a very sweet and fruity taste reminiscent of dates or raisins.I t would make a good aperitif or a good accompaniment to a plate of bread and cheese which is how I had it.It is a good alternative to a port as it has less alchol and more fruit.The only similar wine I have had is a Banyuls from the South of France

    This wine was recommended to me as a good sweet dessert wine so I only have me and my husbands opinion to give. It is very sweet and it packs a punch, there is a lot of alcohol in this wine. However, it is very prune flavored or perhaps raisin flavored with a smokiness. I am not a wine expert by any means its just my 2 cents.

    This wine is very sweet. It is actually the sweetest red I have ever had. Raisin in very strong opening into dates. This would be excellent as a desert wine with dark chocolate.

    "This thick, purple mavrodaphne reserve has gone the way of a tawny Port, age simultaneously lightening and deepening its flavors. Now the fruit is more baked apple and apricot, while the freshness has turned to truffle, spice and deep caramel. Most remarkedly, the sweetness has mellowed considerably, giving plenty of ripe flavors while finishing light and clean." -Wines & Spirits

    Grape Variety : MavrodaphneType of wine : Sweet RedTasting notes : A chestnut-browny red, full-bodied, very dense structure, raisins, figues, jam of roses, dried fruits, walnuts and almonds create an explosive scenery for a port wine connaisseur! The finish is sublime, its sweetness is well balanced by the gentle burning of the alcohol, pointing out an excellent digestif!Technical information : This sweet Mavrodaphne is made from the Mavrodaphne grape. During fermentation, once the level of sugars desired is achieved, the producer fortifies this wine with fine eau de vie from our own production using indigenous grapes. It is then matured in oak French barrels for 5 years. - Winery ** Please Allow 2-3 Weeks Delivery Time **

    Toasted nut, caramel and sweet cedar aromas are followed by hot, spicy flavors, rounded by sweet cherry and vanilla. Earthy but a touch flirty, this wine has an indigenous appeal.

    A sweet dessert wine produced from the Mavrodaphne grape near the city of Patra. Its production method is similar to that of port wines. The wine is then aged for twelve months in oak barrels. It is medium bodied with a sweet dried fruit and raisin flavor. - Winery

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sweet, fruity red wine. Made from 100% Mavrodaphne., meaning black laurel, is mainly found in the Peloponnesean regions of Achaia and Ilia as well as the Ionian Islands. It is blended with the Korinthiaki grape to produce a delicious fortified dessert wine, known as Mavrodaphne.
