EROHOS RED

"Eros (Love) and Hous (earth/land)" means "Love for the land". Our love for the land of Parnassus urged us to create "Erohos". It is the first wine that was vinified on the estate in 2003 and was named Erohos after the ancient name of the village now called Polydroso.

 

Protected Geographical Indication Parnassus

Variety Composition
Mavroudi, Μerlot

Vinification/Aging

After the careful sorting of the grapes, the two varieties are led separately into the stainless-steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation follows. The stay of the juice with the marcs varies from 5 to 8 days, due to the different degree of ripeness of each variety.

Characteristics

The Red Erohos is a blend of the Greek variety Mavroudi and the international one Merlot. After years of experimentation by the winemaker, in the vineyard and the winery, this variety in combination with the cosmopolitan Merlot turned out to be able to offer an excellent result!

It has a deep red color with purple highlights and a well-structured body with a rich texture. Its aroma reminds you of forest fruits and smoky notes. It is known for its moderate acidity left in the mouth with sweet and soft tannins and its moderate aftertaste.

Food Pairings

It accompanies excellently grilled meats or those with red sauces and cheeses.

Served at 14-16ºC.
