Winemaker Notes

#73 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2019

Its aroma will surprise you with its bouquet of spices such as olives, rich dark fruits and hints of tannins that will age and mature unfolding -as time passes- aromas of nuts, raisins and leather. The color is light red with orange hues, which is characteristic of this variety. As you first taste it, you will experience the continuation of the heady bouquet and will discover a wine of medium body, good acidity, soft and tasteful tannins, which make it most elegant to drink!

This wine could accompany a simple or complex food menu or just a special relaxing moment.

Aromas of red currants, dark chocolate and black cherry start this delicious red from Crete. Structured and focused on the palate, its flavors of red berry and spices have a refined overall character.

Douloufakis Winery Video

Douloufakis Winery is widely recognized in Greece for its excellence in traditional winemaking -- with a focus on the future.

In 1930, Dimitris Douloufakis became one of the first winemakers in Crete to produce wines professionally in his traditional, old winery. A consistent award winner, Dimitris’s grandson, Nikolas, now runs the winery carrying on his grandfather’s traditional practices, but with modern equipment in a new facility.

The privately owned vineyards are certified 100% organic and span over 70 acres reaching 1,800 feet elevation in Dafnes, a village close to Iraklio. This region has a long history in viticulture and also has been established as a Protected Designation of Origin for Liatiko wines. In addition to the natural choice of Liatiko, Nikolas grows other indigenous varieties such as Kotsifali, Vilana, Vidiano, along with other international varieties such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
