Anatolikos MV Mavroudi of Thrace Red 2017
Anatolikos MV Mavroudi of Thrace is full of juicy fruits you can’t help but love!
Deep ruby red colour with purple hues. The bouquet offers ripe dark plums and black berry fruit mingling with layers of tobacco, leather and coffee. The fruit-forward palate has blackberry, blueberry and plum flavours dominating. This follows with strawberry and cherry jam, a strong splash of vanilla and hints of cinnamon, liquorice and bitter chocolate. Dry, juicy flavours in the mouth with soft-textured tannins, balanced acidity and a long, complex chocolate finish.
Here’s a fun fact: According to Greek legend, Odysseus offered Mavroudi wine to the Cyclops Polyphemus. Read a short summary of the scene from Homer’s epic poem here.
