Moschόpolis 18 Red Mavrotragano Syrah 4400 BOTTLES
The Moschópolis 18 red wine consists of the Greek grape variety of the Aegean Sea Mavrotragano (50%) and the world-famous Syrah (50%) variety. It is produced with grapes from our privately owned non irrigated vineyards with limited production.. The wine, after fermenting with the spontaneous yeast from the vine, ages for 18 months in used oak barrels that come from their use in the white and the rosé wine of the Moschopolis series. It is bottled unfiltered to maintain all its quality characteristics.
It presents intense aromas of small red fruits, mainly small berries, cherry and plum. Dried fig, nuts and caramel are followed by a sweet sensation of fresh violets coming from the background. After a while in the glass, black chocolate, coffee, spices, chestnut and tobacco from the barrel make their presence well felt.
Dry cultivation vineyard on the slopes of a hilly area, overlooking the Aegean Sea and the mythical mountain of Olympus. At 500 meters above sea level, the soils are dating back to the Cretaceous geological period, full of schist stones, marble and graphite. The complexity of the soil is reflected in the complexity of the wine. The annual yield does not surpass 5 tons per hectare.
