Ambelos Phos rosé

Type: Semi-dry Rosé Wine.
Classification: Protected Geographical Indication Peloponnese.
Grape Varieties: 70% Aghiorgitiko – 30% Syrah.
Description: The semi-dry vinification of the Aghiorgitiko and the Syrah gives us a bright-colored wine with a crisp flavor. The sugar residuals from the fermentation balance out the acidity. It is known for its smooth, fruity aromas, dominated by cherry and strawberry.
Vineyards: From selected vineyards in the mountain regions of Nemea.
Harvest Dates: Mid September for the Aghiorgitiko, late September for the Syrah.
Vinification: Classic rosé vinification, with a few (8-12) hours of extraction at a low temperature. Before it is fully completed, the fermentation is paused, so that 12gr/lt of unfermented sugars can come up.
Served At: 6-8 oC.
Food pairings: Fruit salads, sugarless sweets, light creams. It can also be drunk neat, as an aperitif.
