Preserving images of the fatherland and history, Oenou Yi-Ktima Vassiliades winery created from its age-old Maratheftiko vines the unruly and charismatic Geróklima, an emblematic red wine. Careful sorting of the fruit, controlled fermentation and ageing in new French oak barrels, with the provision of uninterrupted oenological care led to this wine. Its deep crimson colour is accompanied by a bouquet of aromas reminiscent of red forest fruit, such as wild sour cherry and wild cherry. Balanced on the palate, it has spicy notes of freshly ground pepper and rare spices, enchanting every demanding palate.
