Skouras Portes Merlot

Under the Greek sun in the sandy soil of Peleponnese, French Merlot grapes get a completely unique taste. This complex purple-ruby-red merlot is therefore one that keeps surprising you, and one you won't stop talking about. Discover the aromas of red cherries, ripe plums, sweet vanilla and with notes of tobacco and violet. A velvety, full and round mouthfeel. And the ripe, long complex aftertaste. Typical for this Greek Merlot: it is fermented in stainless steel barrels, aged for 8 months in French oak barrels and then another 6 months in the bottle. You do the math.

About the winemakers

George Skouras began his career in the garage of his father in Argos. He rented vineyards and wine material of other Greeks in the region Nemea and used manual bottle machines. Pretty primitive, but the wines already were of high quality. Nowadays the vineyards of Domaine Skouras are located in Argolida, in the region Korinthe and naturally in Nemea. The philosophy of these wines are based on four elements: The degree of purity, racial purity, the atmosphere of the region and the rich characteristics of the soil. Together with his team, he has one purpose: To achieve the optimal maturity and create the best possible grape. Because the better the harvest fruit, the better is the wine.
