Why do we love it?

How would you feel if you had one of the last, collectible magnum bottles of the stunning Syrah 2006 of the Avantis Estate, right from the cellar of the estate and from the personal collection of Apostolos and Lenga?

But let's first put things in the right dimension.

At first, came Syrah. The French variety, one of the most famous in the world, originated from Rhone, it is cultivated in every corner of the planet and gives some of its biggest wines. Then came Apostolos. The man most identified by anyone else with the variety in Greece. Now we are not sure who came first.

Apostolos Moudrihas is the undisputed Master of Syrah. It is he who has highlighted the variety, with his Syrah being considered the ultimate benchmark and the only one to compete with known labels of the international vineyard. Countless awards and major international distinctions simply confirm what we already knew.

You know his Syrah very well and it is definitely your favorite. You also know that it is one of the most classic varieties for aging. For a decade at least.

Preserved in ideal conditions of temperature and humidity in the cellar of the Avantis Estate, these are the few, last bottles of the stunning Syrah 2006 from the personal collection of the estate. They were waiting to be opened and be enjoyed by a suspected wine lover and his company, or to move to the cellar of a collector who can stand to wait.

Whatever you do, enjoy it.

 

*the wine comes from a private collection and cannot be returned.

We could write a long description. We decided not to.

Perfectly preserved, it has evolved beautifully with it's complexity and finesse reaching unprecedented limits.

The last bottles of the stunning Syrah 2006 Avantis Estate will cause repeated bursts on your palate and your brain. So many, that it will be a good thing if you waited a couple of days before tasting anything else. It will be unfair.
