Description

This rustic Greek red from Monemvasia Winery showcases native Agiorgitiko and Mavroudi grapes. The vines are grown on the peninsula of Maleus at the edge of the Parnonas mountain range, up to 500 metres above sea level. Extended maceration and fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, before the wine was matured in new oak barrels for 12 months. Only released after significant bottle ageing. 

Monemvasios is gloriously aromatic with primary red fruit and black cherry aromas complemented by complex notes of mocha, coffee, vanilla and toasted nuts. Round and balanced, with ripe tannins, velvety texture and a sublimely long aftertaste. Try with roast lamb, tomato pastas, spicy South Asian cuisine or hard cheeses.

The Monemvasia Winery in Tsimbidi, part of the Pelopennese wine region, was founded in 1997 with a clear objective: to revive the production of Malvasia wine in its birth place of Greece where, after 300 years, it had fallen out of production. They created the first privately owned 121 hectares of vineyard planted with local varieties and are committed to producing quality wines which showcase the characteristics of these varieties.
