Mountain Fish Agiorgitiko Peloponnese Dry Red, Strofilia

Mountain Fish Agiorgitiko Peloponnese Dry Red, Strofilia

Made from the Agiorgitiko variety grown in vineyards in the mountainous region of Nemea, close to the Greek mainland, around the villages Asprokambos and Psari. The climate here is characterised by a relatively cold winter with high amounts of snow and rain and a very dry summer, with hot days and cool nights. After crushing and a short maceration the fermentation is carried out at warm but never hot temperatures; resulting in a wine that is fresh and aromatic. The nose shows notes of wild cherry and red fruits, whilst the palate is smooth, aromatic with a velvety finish punctuated by clove and vanilla spice. The wine is named after the 'mountain fish' that live in the stream that flows past the vineyards.
