The Agiorgitiko variety is mainly grown in the area of Nemea where it occupies 80% of the vineyard cultivation at an altitude of 250 to 800 meters. This variety is also grown in other Peloponnese districts and in the areas of Central Greece and Macedonia. It produces medium to small in size, spherical and cyan-colored fruit, which has thick skins, juicy and soft flesh. From those grapes the wines tend to be rich in color with moderate levels of tannins (depends on the maceration) moderate levels of acidity and a velvety smooth mouthfeel. The aromas are reminiscent to those of red cooked fruits and sweet spice. Top producers are releasing age worthy wines of great complexity and density usually produced from higher altitude old vineyards which retain higher levels of acidity and lower yields.
