Perpetuus Red 2017

PERPETUUS RED

2017
PGI AGORA
DRY RED WINE

Perpetuus means continuous, everlasting, perpetual. In 2004, the NICO LAZARIDI Winery, through its continuous quest of new tasting experiences and after a planning of many years and incessant vinifications in small individual batches, created two new products: a white and a red wine named Perpetuus.

The noble wine Perpetuus red is produced from the varieties Cabernet Franc and Mavroudi, which create a blend of aromas and flavour harmony.

Type of wine: Dry Red Wine.

Appellation: Varietal Wine

Varietals: Cabernet Franc 60%, Mavroudi 40%

Production Area: Northern Greece, in Macedonia, at the local communities of Agora and Pigadia, in the valley and the low hills on the South-East of Drama town.

Vineyards: Linear planting, north-south orientation. Vineyards gently sloping, with sandy-clay soils of average composition.

Harvest: Second half of September.

Vinification Method: Classic red wine vinification with a long extraction. It ages in new oak barrels of dense porosity for 24 months. Bottled after physical stabilization and without filtering, any amount of sediment is normal.

Analytical Data:
Alcohol: 13.9%
Total Acidity: 6.0g/l
Residual Sugar: 2.27 g/l

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby color. Intense and complex nose. Aromas of mature black fruit, smoke, chocolate, spices, and dried plum. Gentle mouth, full bodied with high level of soft tannins, crispy acidity and a long aftertaste.

Aging: Will respond well to aging for up to 12-15 years after harvest.

Perfect Pairing: Served at 16-18οC, an excellent match for shank of lamb with saffron, pork frame with grape sauce and game meat.
