Yiannis Papargyriou has repeatedly demonstrated that he knows how to take risks. Overripe harvest, alcohol at threshold levels and unprecedented intensity.

The French variety is cultivated at an altitude of 850m in the area of ​​Sofiano, Corinthia and by delaying harvest, the grapes are collected overripe resulting to staggering concentration of their almost wrinkled berries and a particularly high alcohol volume (15%), which impresses with its surprisingly balanced integration throughout the palate. It remained in oak barrels for 18 months and rested in the bottle for a few more.

Bright purple color in the glass.

Tempting nose, with ripe fruity aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, sour cherry and blueberry, surrounded by violet, milk chocolate and eucalyptus. Vanilla, green pepper and cardamom add spicy character with milk caramel, fresh notes of earth, tobacco and skin appearing gradually, adding to its unique complexity.

With an almost chewable body, spicy character, balanced acidity and remarkably velvety tannins it will be hard not to impress you. The particularly high alcohol (16 %) is elaborately integrated and hardly perceptible, beyond the initial sweetness which gives a jammy expression to the fruit. Blueberry, cherry and cashews are combined with cardamom and green pepper. The rich chocolaty feel remains in the mouth in the very long aftertaste.
