Exciting Vradiano & Merlot based red from one of Greece's best regarded winemakers.
The Mountrichas family has been growing grapes since 1830, and today Apostolos and his wife Lenga make the wines and run Avantis Esate. The 20 hectare property is located on the island of Evia, just off the East coast of Greece. A combination of red and white traditional and international varieties are planted, producing both blended and single varietal wines. This estate has a great reputation in Greece as one of the country's most progressive wineries, however was not imported to the UK until 2018.
Tasting Note: Ripe mulberrry and damson aromas with a subtle touch of vanilla. Soft, round palate with gentle tannins. A medium-bodied red wine for daily consumption.
Critics: Jancis Robinson 16.7 (average producer score)
