Producer Note
The Monemvasia Winery was founded in 1997 with a clear objective: to revive the production of Malvasia wine in its birth place. The Frankish name for Monemvasia is Malvasia, which originally lent its name to the wine. In the 12th century and for the subsequent 300 years, this wine ruled the European world. It is still produced in many countries, but until recently was not being produced in the country of its origin Greece. The Monemvasia Winery created the first privately owned 121 hectares of vineyard, planted with local varieties. It is committed to producing quality wines which showcase the characteristics of the indigenous varieties and the terroir of the peninsula of Maleus. Vineyard
The vineyards are located on the peninsula of Maleus at the edge of the Parnonas mountain range, with altitudes ranging from zero to 500 metres above sea level. Surrounded by the Myrtoo Sea to the north-west and by the Laconian Gulf to the south-west, the vineyards are influenced by Mediterranean climate with high sunshine hours and sea breezes. The soils are acidic and are low in organic matter. All these factors contribute in creating a unique terroir and the climatic conditions present an ideal environment for healthy vines, which are cultivated with minimal intervention. Winemaking
Selected grapes were destemmed, crushed and inoculated with carefully selected yeasts. An extended maceration took place at 28°C, so that the ripe Agiorgitiko variety could express its powerful character at full strength. This was followed by a malolactic fermentation and then the wine was matured in new oak barrels for a period of 12 months. This wine is only released after significant bottle ageing. Tasting Note
This deep ruby wine shows attractive aromas of ripe cherry, laced with mocha, coffee, vanilla and hint of nuttiness. Round and balanced, with ripe tannins and a velvety texture, it has a savoury character that leads to a long, persistent finish. Serving Suggestion
An ideal accompaniment to roasted red meats, pan-fried steak-frites and mature cheeses.
