2008 MONEMVASIA, Agiorgitiko. Greece

Bin:  530

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

This is from the south east tip of mainland Greece. The area (Cape Maleas) forms a peninsula between two seas (Myrtoo and the Gulf of Laconia) so the high temperatures are moderated by the ocean winds. It’s also ruggedly mountainous, with vineyards up to 500m high

Grape variety:

90% Agiorgitiko, 10% Mavroudi, matured in new oak for a year; then bottle matured for several more. This is the ‘current vintage’!

Producer:

The winery was set up in 1997 with the intention of reviving production and the reputation of Malvasia – for which Monemvasia is the local translation. They have 120 hectares of various local varieties, all on the peninsula referred to above

Old Bridge rating:

Satisfying combination of characteristically spicy/herby (very Greek) flavours with the serious, dry, cedary feel of a classic oak-matured red
