Nemea Red On Black Mitravelas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Nemea (at least in Southern Greece) is considered the crown jewel of the new wine industry. Greece is justifiably proud of the achievements that have been made there, not least of which was exploiting the potential of the Agiorgatko grape, a potential not limited only to Nemea, nor even to Greece exclusively. There is tremendous agreement that no matter what its potential may be elsewhere, the Agiorgitiko is perfectly adapted to Nemea, especially to the middle of three zones of different elevations, the so-called 'semi-mountainous' zone, at elevations of between 450 and 650 meters, where the overlap of ideal conditions result in good fruit, acidity, body and color that meet the current high expectations for serious wine in world markets.The colour is a deep velvety red with a blue-purple rim. A burst of fruit first, followed by black pepper, cocoa and sour cherry jam, with the black cherries of Agiorgitiko leaping out of the glass. It has good structure and is richly flavoured, with freshness keeping it interesting all through the finish.
