Gerovassiliou - Syrah - Red - 2011 - 1,5L
Ο σπουδαίος οινοποιός είναι εκ των πρωτεργατών της ποικιλίας Syrah και έτσι διόλου δεν κάνει εντύπωση αυτή κυριαρχεί στον αμπελώνα των 780 στρεμμάτων στην Επανομή.
Some of the oldest, low yielding Syrah vines of the estate are vinified separately producing this wine.
Extended maceration of the skins and alcoholic fermentation last about 20 days, follows malolactic fermentation and after that barrel ageing in French oak barrels in the underground cellar.
This wine is richly structured and loaded with complex flavour reminiscent of dark fruits like blackberries and black cherries. On the palate it has a rich, round, opulent feel. The dark fruit character lingers along with subtle oak notes in the long supple finish.
The wine should drink well young yet keep for 20 or more years. After decanting it will begin to reveal its characteristics.
Food pairing: a versatile wine that will complement a wide variety of foods from game dishes to hearty stews, lamb with vegetables and red meats.
