Additional Information on Parparoussis Nemea Reserve 2005

Winery: Parparoussis

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

The Mourvèdre varietal grape is believed to have been brought to Spain over two thousand years ago, where it quickly became popular as it flourished in the greener regions of the country. Before long, it was being grown and processed in many different regions of France, and today it is grown in several New World countries. It is often used as a blending wine, and is particularly successful when blended with Grenache and Syrah varietals. Mourvèdre wines tend to be quite tannic and high in alcohol and acidity, however, with careful handling they produce remarkably flavourful wines packed full of unique flavours and aromas. Mourvèdre wines are often described as having meaty or game notes, coupled nicely with dark berries and deep, complex earthy flavours.

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.
