Nostos Syrah - Magnum


Clear, almost opaque dark purple color with nearly static legs. Intense, dense aromas of black fruit, tobacco, black pepper, ink and coffee. Simultaneously very complex and young in character. Mouth full of varietal character. Full bodied with intense
tannins that are softened by the high level of alcohol. Flavors of black berries, black pepper and wild mountain herbs. Exceptionally long finish with freshness but rich at the same time. Ready to drink. It will reach its peak in the next 4 to 6 years which will last for the following 10 years.

Vinification method
Classic red vinification in open oak vats and controlled temperature. Maceration lasts around 25 days. After maceration is complete the wine is racked into oak barrels (75% French oak, 25% US oak) for ageing over 10 months. All barrels are new and are replaced every 4 years.
Flavors Harmony
Our Syrah is best matched with game; barbequed meat; stewed meat; and all red meats served with spicy sauce.
