2020 Semeli 'Mountain Sun' Red Blend

2020 Semeli 'Mountain Sun' Red Blend
Peloponnese, Greece

The Mountain Sun Red is a blend of 80% Agiorgitiko and 20% Syrah. The grapes are grown in high-altitude limestone and clay vineyards in the mountains of Aigialeia and Mantinia, where they ripen slowly and reach perfect maturation, fully developing the distinctive flavors and aromas of both varieties. The fruit is sustainably farmed, all handpicked and aged in French oak casks for six months. 

Tasting Notes
Vibrant ruby-violet colour. Rich aromatic bouquet combining fresh cherry, lively raspberry and blackberry fruits with a touch of spice on the nose. Balanced palate with round and velvety texture. Noble tannins and long aftertaste. Serving suggestions: It accompanies dishes cooked with tomato sauce, pasta, poultry and grilled red meat with vegetables.

About Semeli
Semeli was founded in 1979 in Nemea by George Kokotos, a civil engineer turned dedicated, passionate winemaker, and his wife Anne. Kokotos was one of the first wave of Greek wine producers to concentrate on producing limited quantities of fine wine. The company owns an estate in northern Attica in the foothills of Mount Penteli. It was in this area that, according to Greek mythology, Dionysos, the god of wine, first taught man the cultivation of the vine and introduced the culture of wine to the Greeks. In honor of this association the first wines were given the name of “Semeli,” Dionysos’ mother. Their estate vineyards are currently in the process of transitioning to full certified organic farming.
