Winemaker's Notes:

Fabulous deep dark garnet red, filling the nose and palate with subtle sensualities of raspberry, strawberry and blueberry. A blend of six different clones is show cased with a smooth mellow finish of dark cherry and mediterranean spice. Brimming with aromas of sweet indian spices and cherry cola and demonstrates a truly elegant burgundian nose.
My Notes:

About Ampelos Cellars:

Ampelos is a Greek word meaning "vine". We believe that all great wines are made in the vineyard, we also have strong ties to Greece, so “ampelos” truly represents our focus.

We believe in taking care of and respecting the environment and that our vineyard needs to be in balance, therefore a few years ago we made the decision to go 100% bio-dynamic. This means we are essentially organic - yet a step beyond. In 2008, we were one of the first vineyards to be certified as Sustainably Farmed, a milestone of which we are particularly proud.
