Additional Information on Boutari Nemea

Winery: Boutari

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

All over Greece and the surrounding countries, the Agiorgitiko grape varietal is held in high regard. The reasons for this are many; not only does this grape varietal have a very high resistant to the soaring temperatures found around the Mediterranean, but it can also thrive in dry and arid land and produce flavorful grapes full of interesting characteristics. Agiorgitiko grapes are most commonly known for their strong fruity flavors, with plum and dark berries being the most common notes identified in the wines they produce. They are also known for their spicy and earthy qualities, and are often successfully blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to boost their often low acid and tannin content. Wineries generally aim for low yields of Agiorgitiko grapes, in order to concentrate their characteristics and make for better quality wine.

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
