Vlassides Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl
"Vlassides Cabernet Sauvignon" is a complex and full-bodied wine. The wine has a multi-faceted character and well-balanced acidity with strong but approachable tannins. It has got a deep red ink colour and a rich nose with aromas of dark berries, chocolate, green pepper and spices.
The grapes are harvested at the beginning of September from our vineyards around the area of Kilani village, which are situated at an altitude of around 650m. We ferment the grapes in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and mature the wine for twelve to fourteen months in small French oak barrels. This maturation period gives the aromas of vanilla, caramel and black chocolate, as well as a smooth texture to the wine.
Although “Vlassides Cabernet Sauvignon” is ready to drink now, it will continue to improve with age for at least ten years from the production year. The wine goes well with spicy food, red meat and game at a temperature of around 18°C. It should be stored horizontally at cellar temperatures of 12-15°C .
