This red wine is from the Peloponnese which is the southernmost part of the Greek mainland. Agiorgitiko is native to this peninsula. It is rich Ruby in the glass with aromatics of plum, prune, licorice and tar. For the warm sunny conditions this is lacking the fruit depth compared to say an Australian red - more like an Etna red. Finishes with fine powdery tannins and an astringent touch. The following day the palate reminded me of a Tuscan Sangiovese with sour cherry and fine grainy tannins. Enjoyable - would buy again.

My first Greek wine. Modern style Syrah, could be from many places. Nose with confectionery notes. Not much oak influence. A pleasant enough drink. More savoury than fruit driven. 17.
