Estate Papaioannou Nemea

Fine Greek red wine with dark fruity notes.


Category Tag


Agiorgitiko is an ancient Greek grape variety mostly planted in Nemea, named for the small St George’s Church found within the boundaries of the appellation: Agiorgitiko translates as “St George’s grape“. A wide range of styles are made from this red grape variety, from lighter, fruitier wines to rich, age-worthy examples such as this. The label references the ‘Lion of Nemea’; a creature of Greek legend, killed by Heracles. A classical red fermentation occurred with ten days of extraction. Then, the wine is aged for one year in oak barrel.

Tasting Note: Ripe plum and forest fruits, concentrated yet graceful with complex spiced nuances, coffee bean and leather with fine tannic structure bringing balance to the dark fruit.
