Nostos Blend Organic Dry Red Wine 750ML
Manousakis Winery- Notos Blend Organic Dry Red Wine
Over the millennia the Lefka Ori Mountains of Western Crete have absorbed the quiet life cycle for thousands of the island’s native flora. When you walk these mountains in the spring it takes you on a sensory adventure filled with the scents of rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender, and chamomile. In the fall, they descend back to the soil and are absorbed and thus the quiet life cycle continues.
Characteristics of Notos Blend: Clear, very dense ruby color with youthful purple notes. Many dense legs coat the glass. Intense nose, complex character with ripened black fruit in excellent balance with the oak. Some notes of leather with finesse and freshness. Mouth with volume and density of high but ripened tannins in perfect balance with the rich alcohol and good acid. Complex flavors follow and reflect the aromas. Long finish that accentuates the freshness while maintaining its richness.
Food Pairing: Nostos is best matched with roasted rack of lamb; roasted red meats; and casseroles.
Varieties: Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache Rouge, Roussanne
Soil: Schist, sandy clay loamy, 320-380m (1050-1350ft) and 550-600m (1600-1950ft) in altitude
Vinification: The red varieties Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache, are vinified
separately in temperature-controlled tanks. Syrah is being vinified in oak casks, whereas Mourvèdre and Grenache in stainless steel tanks.
Maceration lasts from 12-25 days depending on the variety. After maceration is complete, Syrah and Mourvedre is racked into oak barrels (75% French oak, 25% US oak) and Grenache in oak casks (3.000 and 4.000 liters) where malolactic fermentation takes place and it matures for 10 months. Blending follows by adding a small amount of Roussanne, which is fermented, and aged in oak.
