Avaton

A luscious blend of three Greek indigenous red varietals: Limnio, Mavroudi and Mavrotragano. Limnio, mentioned by comic dramatist Aristophanes as "Limnia ampelos" in the 5th century BC (vine from the Greek island Limnos), is the oldest attested Greek grape variety.

Entirely fermented in oak tanks, where malolactic fermentation ensues, the wine is aged in French oak barrels.

It has dark ruby colour, an excellent and complex structure. Its blackberry fruit offers spice and depth, finishes dry and is totally unique.

To sip deliciously on release at 16-18 ºC yet keep for 15-20 years.

Food pairing: interesting partner with hearty stews, savoury dishes, flavoured game dishes.

Prijs: € 21.95

 

Over Gerovassiliou

At Ktima Gerovassiliou the vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm that leads V. Gerovassiliou to constantly research and experiment with Greek and foreign varieties, both well and less known ones. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout vine growing and vinification processes.

The aim is to produce high quality wines from grapes cultivated exclusively in the privately-owned vineyard; wines that carry all distinct characteristics of the specific microclimate (terroir) of Epanomi.
