Color: Deep ruby red.
Nose: Intense aromas of plum, new oak barrel and sweet aging.
Palate: A velvet taste, good structure and balance, is round with a long aromatic aftertaste. A wine that will even further develop which with additional bottle aging.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2008 NEMEA, Boutari’s appellation Agiorgitiko, is low in alcohol (12.5%) and was aged in French oak for 1 year. It has a lush feel to it early on, but it ultimately resolves into a much purer, more powerful and crisper Agiorgitiko with nice cherry aromatics and flavor nuances. With some air, it acquires a notable earthy nuance. Combining that with the nice structure may not make a stereotypical Agiorgitiko, but it drinks nicely. Drink now-2016.
Boutari Nemea is the classic wine of the Nemea A.O.C. region of southern Greece, a region famed for its red Agiorgitiko variety. It has received numerous awards at international wine competitions.
