Ktima Gerovassiliou Avaton 2016

The Ktima Gerovassiliou Avaton is a luscious red wine blend of three indigenous Greek grape varieties: Limnio, Mavroudi and Mavrotragano. Limnio, mentioned by comic dramatist Aristophanes as "Limnia ampelos" in the 5th century BC is the oldest attested Greek grape variety and predominates in this wine. Aged for 15 months in French oak, ripe dark fruits combine with notes of raisin, coffee, cacao and a hint of spice. Perfumed and polished, this smooth, medium bodied wine delivers sweet and sour notes of black plum, with depth and spice leading to a dry finish. Totally unique!
