Winery Ktima Mitravelas

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

For many thousands of years, the Agiorgitiko grape varietal has thrived in the arid mountainsides of the Peloponnese, where it is prized for its hardiness and high resistance to high temperatures. Typically, wineries in Greece cultivate Agiorgitiko grapes to have low yields with concentrated flavors, in an attempt to get the strongest characteristics from these flavorful grapes. Typically, Agiorgitiko grapes have beautiful plum flavors, with notes of other dark fruits and a spicy character, although they are notable for the fact that they respond very well to a range of wine making techniques. As such, there are many different styles of wine made from the Agiorgitiko grape, ranging from tannic and astringent to very soft and rounded. They are also popular with wineries due to the fact that they grow in often very infertile land, and improve the quality of the soil in which they are cultivated.

Country: Greece

Few countries in the world can claim such an illustrious history of viticulture as that found in Greece, just as few countries can benefit from such an impressive range of terrain as that found across the mainland and islands of this ancient and fascinating land. When we consider that grapes are grown everywhere from the tiny islands in the Aegean sea, to larger land masses such as Rhodes and Crete, on the arid and rocky mainland and mountainous regions of Greek Macedonia, it is no wonder Greek wines show such huge diversity in style, flavor, aroma and character. One thing remains consistent, however, and that is the dedication to producing distinctly 'Greek' wines, full of characteristics which reflect the slow evolution of viticulture in a country which has been producing wine for several thousand years. Whilst certain wines, such as Retsina and those made from the Agiorghitiko grapes have long since been popular with fine wine drinkers world-wide, Greek wineries are continuing to produce superb wines using a wide range of native and imported grape varietals, meaning there are always plenty of new flavors and aromas to discover.
