Overview

Nemea Aivalis encompasses all the elements one expects from the Aivalis style: rich texture, roundness, elegance and character. It is the producer’s basic Nemea wine, which however encompasses many features of premium and expensive wines.
Red fruit jam, plum and sweet spices are followed by mint, herbs and tea leaves to create a uniquely elegant wine. As is the case with all Aivalis wines, it is recommended for accompanying food, particularly rich dishes, which match its body and rich texture.
Nemea Aivalis is made from exceptional quality low-yield grapes produced in a single-vineyard 'Gerakina' and is the absolute value-for-money choice.
