MOUNTAIN SUN AGIORGITIKO/SYRAH 2016

by Semeli Wines
$16.50

From the area of Central Peloponnese here is a nice example of a Greek varietal blended with a well known French one. Agiorgitiko and Syrah come together (80-20%), for what could be your perfect red wine for the Summer. Wine is aged for six months in French oak, the idea being not to overpower the blend; instead provide structure to a fruit forward wine. The balance is just right; Red fruit on the forefront, with peppery overtones (say hello to Syrah), this medium red wine has the right amount of acidity and tannins to stand up to your Summer BBQ adventures. Just remember to cool it down to 60-62F and enjoy. Produced by Semeli Winery.  ABV13% RP87
