Paterianakis 2018 Domaine Red (Crete) ORGANIC

It has an impressively sanguine nose, while the palate nods to both Bordeaux and Italy while settling in the end to an authentically Cretan identity, appropriate to this ancient culture. As a vertical tasting proved, it is a long-distance runner, gaining refinement and salinity as it ages.

Notes from the Producer: Domaine Paterianakis is a vintage wine from indigenous grape varieties with a cosmopolitan personality. The grape varieties of this
wine are from old vines.
The red variety Kotsifali is one of the most remarkable red grape varieties in Crete, while the red variety Mandilari stands out for its rich
color and intense tannins. Thus, their combination is considered particularly successful. They are perfectly combined, as Kotsifali gives
wines with high alcohol content , high acidity and elegant aromas,
while Mandilari gives wines with primary aromas, intense red color
and tannins.
The red varietals that go into making the PDO Peza red wines are
80% Kotsifali and 20% Mandilari and create the balanced wine produced here for many generations.
Domaine Paterianakis and Melissinos are the first wines produced at
our winery. The label is painted by hand from Georgios Paterianakis,
the creator of the winery.
