Peloponnese

The Peloponnese is the large four fingered peninsula at the southern end of the Greek mainland. The morphology of the Peloponnese is complex with a high central plateau (home to the fragrant varietal, Moschophilero) surrounded by mountains that are higher still. The mountain complexes create an enormous variety of altitudes, orientations and soil types which are reflected in the wines produced. Nemea, home of the Agiorgitiko grape and the most subtle red wines of southern Greece is in the north east Peloponnese. The north west is particularly famous for its sweet wines based on Mavrodaphne or on the local version of Muscat a petits grains. Our producers from the Peloponnese are Mercouri, Parparoussis and Tselepos.

Wine TypeDomaine Mercouri Cava 2000
‘Cava’ is the term indicating according to the Greek appellation rulesthat a wine of such a type has been aged for at least three years: this one has been aged in cask for three and has enormous depth and a luscious aftertaste. The small proportion of Mavrodaphne (the basis of the great sweet wines of the northern Peloponnese) darkens and sweetens this chocolatey, toffeeish, viscous wine.

The wine was named Best Old World Red by Steven Spurrier in the March 2006 issue of Decanter.

Wine TypeMercouri Chortes 1997
This spectacular, sweet red wine is a blend of sundried Mavrodaphne and a small amount of Corinthian currants. Rich yet utterly pure, powerful yet perfectly balanced it reveals layer after layer of complex flavours and runs exactly poised to a long and smooth finish. While an excellent accompaniment to puddings or Roquefort or foie gras, this noble wine is best contemplated alone. Its production is tiny and each bottle is numbered with only three digits. The variations in the character of each vintage are remarkable. The 1997 is one of the greatest so far, grand and for so luscious a wine even austere
