Sigalas Apiliotis Mezzo 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Mandilaria red naturally sweet wine. The grapes are sun dried for 10-12 days, then are taken to the destemmer crusher. The wine is then oak-aged in old oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months. Deep and rich red colour, with the proper balance between sugars, tannins and acidity. With a vibrant and complex after-taste.

The company was founded in 1991, under the name Sigalas Winery Ltd. The winery was initially located in the traditional canava of the Sigalas family. In 1998, a new production, bottling and aging facility was constructed, located in a privately owned area. Since then, and after continuous investment in modernization and expansion of the facilities, the company has a processing and bottling production capacity of 300,000 bottles annually. 2003 was a milestone, since the shareholders of the company were increased, with the participation of Mr. Alexander Avataggelos, resulting in the increase of the financial capacity of the company. This is also the year when the company was renamed as Domaine Sigalas S.A. Today, Domaine Sigalas continues to implement its growth plan, based on the three principles on which it was created: a creative relationship with the traditions of the island of Santorini, technical savvy and quality. The winery is open to the public and the visitors can tour the areas and become acquainted with the taste of the Santorini wines as well as sample the culinary delights of the Cyclades, since there is a wine tasting room which can hold as many as 40 guests. The scenic location of the winery and the positioning of the wine tasting room to the west, affords the opportunity to all guests to enjoy the colours of the setting sun as it descends on the vineyard. The guests are also given a tour of the winery where they are informed of all the stages necessary to produce the wines, and of course are offered the opportunity to sample the wines of the estate, as well as sample the culinary delights of the Cyclades, learning of the varieties of the Santorini viticultural region while delighting in the serenity and colour of the island. The winery can also arrange for dinners to be served for 6–12 guests, where the wines of Domaine Sigalas are complimented by traditional Cycladic delicacies. The wine tasting area that is located in the middle of the vineyard is available for weddings. There is a possibility of music with DJ or live traditional music, until 3am. The wine tasting room can hold up to 50 guests. Wine Tasting Room Opening Hours: April, May, October 10.00am - 19.00pm Monday-Friday 11.00am - 19.00pm Saturday & Sunday June, July, August, September 10.00am - 21.00pm Monday-Friday 11.00am - 21.00pm Saturday & Sunday Read less

Very nice dessert wine. Served it after a Greek Easter dinner (leg of lamb) and it was a perfect compliment to the dessert.



Tasting Notes:

Tastes Italian except for that more marked acid. Tart but sweet and very interesting.

100% Mandilaria red naturally sweet wine. The grapes are sun dried for 10-12 days, then are taken to the destemmer crusher. The wine is then oak-aged in old oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months. Deep and rich red colour, with the proper balance between sugars, tannins and acidity. With a vibrant and complex after-taste.
