The grapes for the Notios Red (AKA “The Southerner” in Greek) come from select, mature,low-yielding vines in the hills of the Koutsi region of Nemea. The vineyards are non-irrigated, and are located on a ten-degree slope facing West-Southwest. These conditionsoffer the ideal environment for producing small clusters of small, thick-skinned berries withmore serious, concentrated fruit flavors and characteristically “spicy” notes.
Deep purple in color, with explosive fruit on the nose and a peppery youthfulness to thepalate. This red has a velvety mouth feel, with flavors of black cherry followed by elegantnotes of butter caramel.
The fine tannins make this an excellent pairing wine for a variety of meat dishes.
