La Tour Melas Cyrus One

Produce wines in Greece that are at least as good as others from traditional wine countries: this challenge was accepted by Kyros Melas in the late 1990s. La Tour Melas Cyrus One proves that he succeeded. More than ever. The red wine is a typical French Bordeaux blend with a Greek touch. Due to a longer maceration, the merlot and cabernet franc release extra aromas of cherry, raspberry and blueberry. The lower temperature fermentation brings out the floral of the agiorgitiko. The best of both worlds come together in a smooth red wine full of depth. Cool down before serving and enjoy!

About the winemakers

When Kyros Melas in Zürich had tasted from Chateau La Fleur, he took on a bet: He would produce in Greece a wine that would be at least as good. He began planting near village Achinos in central Greece. In a region without a tradition of winemaking. Kyros Melas found this very strange. Because the soil, the slope and the fantastic climate of the nearby Aegean sea, with evening breeze to cool the vines create a perfect microclimate for a vineyard. The growing inventory of quality wines of Greek as well as French grapes is living proof. La Tour Melas keeps looking for the ultimate quality wine, just as long until every possibility of the soil is being used.
