Agiorgitiko’s are hearty Greek wines that are perfect with red meats like steak. Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays lovely dark cherry notes along with some mocha and mild dark chocolate. On the medium length finish the wine’s lovely edgy tannins and firm acidity come through beautifully. If your looking for a smooth elegant wine, ya this isn’t that. If you want a distinctive, dry, edgy wine this may be right up your alley. If you have not had an Agiorgitiko before this is a good one to try. Some are even more sharp. I would give this a solid 88, which for the price is a great deal. I will go back and grab more … We paired it with a BBQ striploin and it was a perfect pair! From the LCBO web site, check stock …
Native to Nemea in the Peloponnese peninsula of southern Greece, Agiorgitiko is the most widely planted of all Greek red wine grapes. This 100% Agiorgitiko showcases ripe raspberry, juicy plum, lavender, and exotic spices in a sleek, velvety frame. Lightly chill, then pair with roast meats or gyros.
