Amethystos Rosé

The Oenogist and winewriter Argyris Tsakiris dubs the Amethystos as “the parent of the rich rosé wine category” and not unjustly. Since 1992, when it was first introduced, it created many imitators  and countless friends.

Vintage

2016

Varietal Composition

Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 20%

Alcohol

13% Vol.

Crystal bright, deep rosy colour.

Expressive aromatic presence in tones of redcurrant and strawberry candy.

Lively at first contact, it then reveals a model combination of richness and acidity, completed by the long fruity finish.

Ideal match for many staples of Greek cuisine like stuffed vegetables, ”ladera” (vegetables cooked in an olive oil-based sauce), seafood and fish in tomato sauce, but also, a valued ally to face the spicy challenges of indian or Thai cuisine.

3 – 4 years from harvest.

Low yields and skin contact form this wines character.

– 0,75 lt. Bottles
