Laura Nera

Mavrodaphne, when vinified in a dry style, produces wines with deep red color, medium to full body, nice acidity and tannins.
The first to vinify Mavrodaphne, an indigenous variety of our region, Achaia, in a dry, fresh style to best pronounce the complexity of the fruity character without the oak touch.
It is a fresh wine of a deep red color and a complexity of aromas of red fruit of plum and sour cherry. It is rich in flavor, with soft tannins.

APPELATION

PGI Slopes of Aigialia

VINIFICATION

The grapes remain in the fridge at 46˚F for 48 hours. The grapes are destemmed and cold extracted for 12 hours. Following a short maceration on the skins, the free run must is transferred to a tank, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is bottled without being filtered.

Achaia

Slopes of Aigialia

The vineyards, are particular in form and position. It is a charming place to go sightseeing as it consists one of the most plentiful vineyards in Greece.The cultivation of these grapevines is ideal due to the northern and northeastern exposure of the slopes as they are not overexposed to the sun during the summer months, however at the same time they bask in the cool breeze of the Corinthian Gulf.The exceptional climatic conditions as well as the various fertile types of land that have been formed from old geological alluvial soil and the existence of good drainage everywhere due to the incline and the lowest yield from the rest of Achaia, contribute to the production of top quality wines.
