The mountainous vineyards in the mountains of Aegialia gave birth to Orivatis 2017 Akriotis Winery. A lighter version of the beloved "Burgundish" variety than those we have seen so far shows that perhaps this is the style that suits her best.
Although it is a passepartout wine, do not be afraid at all to pair it with dishes ranging from moussaka to bbq and from pasta with red sauce to grilled salmon. Although on its own, the Orivatis 2017 Red Akriotis Winery is one of those to keep you company all around the year.
Bright ruby color in the glass with purple hues.
Cool aromas of red fruit with plum and cherry like you just cut it. Strawberry in more jammy form, blackcurrant and raspberry complement the fruity side of its character. From now on, light animal hints of bacon and leather, graphite and hints of liquorice complete the beautiful bouquet.
Moderate volume body, as cool as the nose, with subtle fruity flavors being supported by soft tannins and balanced acidity. Cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant are in the lead, with liquorice complementing the pleasant and easy-set. The long lasting fruity aftertaste leaves the cherry in the mouth for quite a while. Enjoy it slightly chilled at 14 degrees.
