A lovely introduction to the classic Greek Agiorgitiko (pronounced 'Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko' !) grape.
Domaine Papagiannakos was established in 1919 in the heart of the plain of Mesogaia, Attica - just 30km from the shadow of the Acropolis. Third generation winemaker, Vassilis Papagiannakos, was born and bred in Markopoulo, and grew up around the family winery. At that time the Savatiano variety was the winery' s sole focus - but later Malagouzia was introduced, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other varieties. The Papagiannakos family continues its traditions whilst bringing the winery into the 21st Century with a stunning and innovative bioclimatic winery.
Papagiannakos Erythros wine has broad, generous aromas of ripe dark fruits and a hint of spice and star anise. The wine has rich bramble fruit characters, finely structured with well-integrated French oak, fine tannins, a light savoury note and a blackcurrant pastille twist on the finish. Great with steak, or try lamb-stuffed peppers.
