A fresh red wine that you won't be able to live apart from!

Why do we love it?

What will happen if 30 acres of vineyards in Pyrgos Ilias fall into the hands of a young oenologist? The Drouvas Winery can give a very interesting answer to this question, with the first bottling of 3 labels from the hands of the 27-year-old Julia Drouva. And when we say from the hands, we mean it, as the harvest is manual and even the pressing of the grapes has minimum mechanical intervention. Julia comes from a wine-making family, so oenology was almost an one-way choice for her.

The first one to fall in our hands, was Finikas Red, a blend of Mavroudi and Agiorgitiko in a 70-30 ratio. Its name comes from the palm trees planted in various parts of the estate.

This fresh red wine, which hasn’t even heard the word oak, is what you want when it has 40o C outside, but you do not want to leave your favorite wine color behind. If you put it in the fridge for a while, it can perfectly accompany summer evenings or the BBQs.

Purple color, with ruby ​​shades in the glass.

The nose is of moderate (+) aromatic intensity with the juicy red and black fruits of the forest (sour cherry, raspberry, cherry and currant) dominating. Lavender, carnation, iodine and butter caramel complements the very interesting aromatic bouquet.

Medium-volume body, balanced acidity, and mature velvety tannins. In the mouth the fruits (sour cherry, cherry, fresh plum, cranberry) balance between freshness and maturity giving a very delicious effect. The fragrant lavender after-taste will excite you.
