Drink it now, or cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant but best to open it half an hour before service.

Located in Greece, on the Peloponnesus, Domaine Skouras was founded in 1986 by George Skouras. His first wine was a pioneering blend of the local Agiorgitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, he has been regarded as one of the most important winemakers in the wine Renaissance of this beautiful country. The company owns several vineyards in Nemea and Argolida and buys grapes from carefully selected local growers. The winery is located just outside Argos and is a beautiful wine tourism destination.

The Grand Cuvée Nemea of George Skouras is one of the strongest expressions of Agiorgitiko. Made from 100% Agiorgitiko grapes sourced from 25 years old vines planted on red clay, rich in minerals and located in Corinthia at over 1000m above sea level. The wine is aged in new French barriques for 12 months, 4 of which on fine lees, and then left in the bottle for a further six months.

This is a strong, characterful wine with a bright, deep ruby color. On the nose, there’s plenty of red fruits, including blueberries, cherries followed by sweet spices and tobacco. The wine has a great body, balanced acidity and firm but velvety tannins and persistent fruity flavors on the palate. It pairs deliciously with red meat and grilled lamb.
