Product description

The sweet, aged red dessert wine Chortais is produced using sun-cured grapes of varieties Mavrodaphne and Corinth Currant, in which the fermentation process has been interrupted at a suitable time for the addition of alcohol. Afterwards, the wine is transferred into French oak barrels where it matures for 5 years before it is bottled.

It has a brilliant ruby colour, with indications of its ageing and a flavour that is rich and velvety, with perfumes of chocolate, plum and caramel to the fore. Solid and harmoniously structured, the wine is full-bodied with delicate tannins and a lasting aftertaste of hazelnut and chocolate.

Annual production is approximately 1,200 bottles.

Residual sugar 145 gr/l.

Its ageing potential is more than 15 years.
