Domaine Skouras was established in 1986 in Pyrgela, Argos by Dijon-trained oenologist George Skouras. In 1988 Skouras launched his pioneering Megas Oenos label, the first to blend Saint George, a Greek grape (aka Aghiorghitiko), with Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1996 a small winery was built at Ghymno, one of the villages inside the Nemea Appellation of Origin zone and in 2004, the Winery started operating from its facility at Malandreni. Domaine Skouras is at the forefront of Greek estates, full of momentum and with a sharp focus on its future. This wine hails from the Nemea appellation within the Peloponnese region. One-hundred percent Aghiorghitiko from 20+ year old vines; it is planted in clay soils at 650-meters above sea level. Fermented and macerated in stainless steel vats, it undergoes maloactic fermentation and is then aged in French barriques for 12-months and another six in bottle.

The color is bright, deep crimson. The nose reveals aromas of blackberries, black raspberries and ripe strawberries with just a touch of anise and spices such as clove and cinnamon. It is a medium bodied wine with graceful texture, balanced acidity and very ripe elegant tannins. The finish is moderately long, full of red fruits with a touch of sweet vanilla and black pepper.
