the best example of this exquisite Greek grape variety to date
Bizios Estate is favourably situated on Nemea's hillside sub-region of Asprokambos - noted by Julia Harding MW as the region's "best of the best for fresh and well-structured wines for ageing" - and is a source of wonderfully authentic, artisan, red and white Greek wines.
While much less well-known than larger Nemea neighbours such as Gaia and Skouras, Bizios Estate nevertheless enjoys some of the best terroir of Nemea, with the cool hill-top night-time temperatures of the vineyards resulting in wonderful purity of fruit and firm, age-worthy structure in the wines.
Bizios Estate's 2011 Nemea Agiorgitiko is the best example of this exquisite Greek grape variety to date, showing wonderfully ripe black fruit aromas, intermingling with notes of smokey spices and vanilla.
In the mouth, the 2011 shows typically weighty Agiorgitiko notes of dense black fruits, mixed with a hint of juicy raspberry. Tannins are soft and velvety, although still showing enough grip to suggest a certain amount of cellaring potential.
