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

Thanks to thousands of years of viticulture, and a dedication to quality and experimentation, Greek wines remain in a league of their own and continue to surprise and delight wine lovers around the world. From the refined and delicious Agiorghitiko wines, with their deep ruby red color and intense fruit flavors, to the unusual and highly aromatic fortified wines made with the black Mavrodaphne grapes, Greek wine is renowned for its variety and consistent excellence. It seems the blazing Mediterranean sunshine allows wineries to make the most of the late harvests and all the intensity of flavor this brings, resulting in wines which are bursting with fruit-forward character and unusual aromas.
