1879 BOUTARI LEGACY
Type: Red, dry
Category: Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Naoussa
Producer: Boutari Company
Winery: Boutari Naoussa Winery
An authentic terroir wine from a single vineyard from Trilofos Naoussa. The wine was named 1879 in honor of the year that the company was established in Naoussa by John Boutaris. The wine embodies the history of the family and expects to introduce the modern consumer to the complex and fascinating Xinomavro.
Typical red wine vinification with a high level of compound extraction, essential for an aged wine.
In French oak barrels for 24 months.
Deep red colour. Intense complexity with primary aromas of red berries, dried fig, tomato juice. Secondary aromas from intense ageing consist of vanilla, plum, roasted nuts and a touch of cigar box. Full bodied, with pleasant acidity. Very soft tannins provide a soft mouthfeel, rich in density with a long, warm finish and an aftertaste of cocoa and red fruit.
The History of Greek red wine begins…at the Boutari Winery in Naoussa!
A guided tour in the production area, the historical cellar of the Winery and a unique multimedia show, are the best introduction to the history and philosophy of the Boutari company. The history of the company began there, 130 years ago, promoting Greek wine in Greece and abroad, while it has played a leading role in the development of the Greek winemaking ever since.
This is where the wine-vaults are located, an innovative service for consumers store and maintain wines in perfect condition in a personal vault at the Boutari winery; we can also find old vintages (the oldest Greek red wines in the country) and one of the largest cellars of aged wines with over 3,000 barrels.
