Grande Cuvée 2013 - Domaine Skouras

Grande Cuvée 2013 – Domaine Skouras

One of the finest Nemea reds available, not least because it’s made from selected fruit grown at an altitude of 1,040m. Careful vinification and maturation ensures the preservation of typicity, as well as the maximisation of the grape character’s expression.
