Manolesakis Estate Exis Red Drama 2019

A light to medium bodied wine with notes of raspberry, cranberry, wild herbs and rose petal. A fresh summer style red.

Producer Note

Stavros Manolesakis and his father George Manolesakis started creating their own vineyards in 1989, planting Greek varieties alongside international varieties. Embracing the philosophies of culture, love and a passion for winemaking, it prompted them to establish their own wine company: Manolesakis Estate in 1999. Keen to experiment and break winemaking boundaries, they have equipped the winery with the latest technological machinery, in order to produce the best results.

Vintage

Mild temperatures and low rainfall took place in the winter of 2017 to 2018. Temperatures in spring were slightly higher than average, which led to favourable fruit set. Frequent rainfall during the summer- almost daily- retained good acidity levels. Fortunately the gentle winds that ventilate the vineyard kept it disease-free. The Limnio and Moschomavro varieties were harvested on 26th August 2018 at very good Baume levels and excellent colour intensity. The fruit was harvested at night, preserving the quality of the grapes.

Vineyard

Made from the indigenous varieties of Limnio (pronounced LIM-neeo) and Moschomavro (Mosho-MAV- roh), the vineyard is located in Drama, where the microclimate has been considered as the perfect spot for grape cultivation since ancient times. The vineyard sites are situated at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres above sea level and the vines are cultivated in the traditional way, planted in linear rows. The soil is mostly clayish and argil.

Winemaking

The grapes were carefully selected and only those which had reached perfect maturity levels were used in this blend. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures to obtain maximum aromatic character and smooth tannins. Following fermentation, the wine was matured on its fine lees for a period of two months, to enhance the volume and body in the resulting wine. Blending took place prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

This blend of Limnio and Moschomavro shows a complex bouquet, with gooseberry and blueberry from the Moschomavro grapes; and cherry, plum with hints of clove and cinnamon from the Limnio. Velvety smooth on the palate this has a wonderfully balancing acidity and an elegant finish.
