Nemea Grande Reserve
In the Winery
After delivery, the grapes are pressed. Pre-fermentation extraction takes place at low temperatures for about 3 days and they remain in the tank until exhaustion of sugars. Then, the fresh wine is brought down to the cellar for malolactic fermentation and maturation in French and American oak barrels. It remains there for about 18 months. It is then bottled and remains in bottles for at least 12 months.
It is ready to drink now, but the next 4 years will add complexity and finesse. Careful transfusion to carafe 1 hour prior to serving is highly recommended.
Deep purple colour with vibrant red hues. Aromatic notes of red fruit syrup, roasted fruits, spices. Robust, with well-processed tannins. The finish offers a long after-taste of roasted fruits. Ideal with red meat stews or cheese platters.
