Description

In 1996, the Orgion of Evryviadis Sclavos, was the first dry wine made by Mavrodaphne. The first planting of the family vineyard in Paliki Cephalonia took place in 1919. In 1986, it was biologically certified and since 1996 it follows the principles of biodynamic cultivation. The Orgion red wine is released in two versions. The conventional from non-organic cooperating vineyards, and Organic from the family-owned vineyards with their autochthonous plants over 70 years of age. Sandy-rocky soils, cup-shaped vines, and yields at 2500 kgs/ acre give perfectly concentrated berries.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby color in the glass. A moderate nose, with chocolate having the first and last word. Meanwhile, you will meet plum, raspberry, coffee beans, cocoa, and tobacco. Cinnamon and earthly notes of fresh soil compliment the evolutionary bouquet. Medium body, with unexpectedly velvety tannins and the refreshing acidity of the variety. Chocolate, plum, and dried fig stand out while chocolate persists in the long-lasting finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Pair with cooked red meats, traditional Cephalonian meat pies, game or yellow cheeses.
