Manolesakis Estate Exis Red Drama 2020

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.
Vineyard
This wine is a blend of two indigenous varieties: Limnio (pronounced LIM-neeo), which
produces full bodied wines, with a relatively high alcohol content and a distinctive
herbal character of bay leaves; and Moschomavro (Mosho-MAV- roh) which produces
fresh wines, with noticeable acidity, soft tannins and aromas redolent of ripe red fruit,
grapes and cloves. The vineyard is located in Drama, where the microclimate has
been considered the perfect spot for grape cultivation since ancient times. Situated at
an altitude of 200 to 300 metres above sea level, the vines are cultivated in the
traditional way and are planted in linear rows. The soil has a high clay content, which
retains moisture during the warm, dry summers to nourish the vines.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected and only those which had reached perfect maturity
levels were used in this blend. Fermentation took place under controlled temperatures
to obtain maximum aromatic character and smooth tannins. 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 with a fresh and elegant
finish.
