Iouliatiko Boutari sweet red wine (500ml)

Produced in Greece

The red indigenous variety “liatiko” (Iouliatiko Boutari) is mainly found in Crete and dates back to ancient times. It probably owes its name to its early ripening, since it matures in July – the 7th (VII) month of the year. It offers dry wines, with a high alcoholic content and strong red colour, but also sweet, sun-dried wines with a rich aroma and full taste. “Iouliatiko” borrowed its name from the earlier appellation of this variety.

A wonderful dessert sweet wine, worthy of Greek tradition in sweet wines. Rich aromas of fruit, nuts, coffee and aging aromas, intense but pleasant taste greasy. Drink chilled as an aperitif or accompaniment with fruit, ice cream and savory tyromezedon, and blue cheese.

VINIFICATION: After “sun-drying” the grapes for approximately 10 days, white vinification is applied, which proceeds very slowly.

AGEING: 3 years in oak barrels.

CHARACTERISTICS: Brilliant purple colour, with strong brown hues. Complex bouquet, which reveals aromas of dried fruit, nuts, coffee and cocoa. Very good structure and balance with rich taste, strong aromas from ageing and long-lasting aromatic aftertaste.

SERVING TEMPERATURE: 6-8 °C

FOOD PAIRING: Served as an aperitif, great with fruit dishes, tarts, ice-cream, desserts, as well as sweet starters like cheese pies with honey, rusks cooked in wine, cheesecake with wild cherries, and white goat cheese with honey. Blue cheeses like Gorgonzola or Danablu.

The  Iouliatiko Boutari, is an excellent example of a naturally sweet wine that captures the seductive aura of the Greek island of eternal summers and the beneficial effect of the sun on a bottle of wine. Deep amber color with intoxicating aromas of raisin, honey, nutmeg, clove, peach pistachio, roasted nuts, caramelized ginger, tea, espresso notes, saffron and countless sweet aromas with myrrh from sweet myrrh.
