Deep red colour with aromas of black cherry and plum together with the discreet presence of cinnamon aromas that have been acquired from aging in barrels of Greek oak, which at the same time softens the tannins and produces a velvety texture. The after taste is very intense with a strong presence of smoky flavours.

Megapanos Nemea is produced from the well know variety Aghiorgitiko (St. George) of Nemea. Our vines are cultivated on mountain slopes at an altitude of approximately 800m. and produce small purple coloured grapes. Following the vinification process the wine is stored in our cellars for another year before it is offered to the consumers. It has a deep red colour, an aroma of sour cherries, blackberries and spices, a robust body and a smooth round taste.

TECHNICAL PROPERTIES

Selected grapes are destemmed and directed into the stainless steel tank where fermentation takes place at a temperature of 28°-30°C for a period of approximately 8-10 days. This ensures the maximum extraction so as to obtain the intense character of the Aghiorgitiko and thereby to enable the ageing over a period of several years. The wine is then clarified and stabilized with the use of gelatine and placed in Greek oak barrels to age for one year so as to acquire a truly Greek character. After ageing in oak barrels the wine is filtered using membranes of 0.8 micron in diameter, bottled, and then laid down in our cellar for a further year before it is offered to consumers. The wine requires this period to allow its aromatic characteristics to develop to their full potential.
