Dry Red Varietal Wine
Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
The latest addition to Semeli’s line-up, SPONDEE 2016, a Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend from select vineyards in the regions of Atalanti and Domokos, Phthiotis prefecture, has aged for 12 months in the winery’s cool cellar.
Elegant and complex in the nose, with the aromas of all three varieties expressed in a firm and perfectly balanced way and without a single one of them outshining the rest.
The expectations for the mouth raised by the complex, balanced and elegant nose, are totally met, as the signature varietal traits unfold gradually. Generous and spicy, with round, quite soft tannins, well balanced by alcohol, this wine brings a full mouthfeel to the palate.
Matches superbly with classic or traditional Greek dishes, including braised meat in fresh tomato sauce, moussaka and pastitsio. Also pairs well with creative Greek and Italian cuisine.
Best served at 16°C in a large wine glass. Decanting is a must to get the most out of the wine’s bouquet.
