Ruby Red Syrah 2014 - Hatzinikolaou Winery

Variety: Syrah
Region: Αιγαίο Πέλαγος

Syrah or Shiraz (from the ancient Persian city of Shiraz) is a very popular grape which is well suited for the Greek climate. More and more wineries are now turning towards it. Ours is made from our own, unwatered grapes grown on the foothills of Mount Dikaios in Kos, giving it an even stronger taste and aroma. It has matured in oak barrels and, as with all our wines, has a natural aging cork.

Hatzinikolaou Winery

Small family winery on the island of Kos. All our wines are made with our own, unwatered grapes, giving them a fuller body and taste. We try to impose minimum intervention using native yeast and as fewer sulfides as possible. Our vineyard is located on the NW side of one of the Dikaios mountain foothills, at an altitude of 250-400 metres. The area is aptly known as "Horafa" (big field) which, by Kos standards, it is, even though 7 acres (only half of them planted so far) might be considered a joke elsewhere.

Besides the popular international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, we are focused on an obscure local variety called "Mavrothyliko" (the Black Lady grape). This was an almost extinct local variety which we rediscovered in 2009 and decided to revive. Half our roots are now Black Lady roots, making us the biggest producer worldwide and the first ever to produce the particular grape commerically. This was also the main reason for the creation of our winery.

Black Lady can be found in our Dry Red Platanaki (60%) and is also one of the main ingredients of Asfendiano, a local sweet mulled wine.

We also offer Pink Dry Platanaki (Syrah & Cabernet) as well as White Dry Platanaki (Malagouzia & Asryrtiko).

All our wines are offered in either 375ml or 750ml bottles with natural aging corks.

Our total output per year is currently less than 10,000 bottles, though we have the potential of going up to 30,000.
