Manolesakis Estate Exis Red Wine 2019

The Exis red wine from Manolesakis Estate is a light to medium-bodied red wine with notes of raspberry, cranberry, wild herbs and rose petal. A fresh summer style red.

 

Producer Note - Stavros Manolesakis and his father George Manolesakis started creating their own vineyards in 1989, planting Greek varieties alongside international varieties. Embracing the philosophies of culture, love and a passion for winemaking, it prompted them to establish their own wine company: Manolesakis Estate in 1999. Keen to experiment and break winemaking boundaries, they have equipped the winery with the latest technological machinery, in order to produce the best results.

 

Vintage - Unusually extreme temperatures took place during the winter of 2016-2017 in Drama; but this did not affect the vineyards. However, during the spring there were several days during the flowering period when the temperatures dropped significantly resulting in a reduced yield by approximately 20 to 25% on the previous year. The Limnio and Moschomavro varieties were harvested on 29th August in the cool of the night; the grapes achieved very good 'Baume' sugar levels and an excellent intensity of colour.

 

Vineyard - Made from the indigenous varieties of Limnio (pronounced LIM-neeo) and Moschomavro (Mosho-MAV- roh), the vineyard is located in Drama, where the microclimate has been considered as the perfect spot for grape cultivation since ancient times. The vineyard sites are situated at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres above sea level and the vines are cultivated in the traditional way, planted in linear rows. The soil is mostly clayish and argil.

 

Winemaking - The grapes were carefully selected and only those which had reached perfect maturity levels were used in this blend. The fermentation took place at 22°C in order to obtain the maximum aromatic character and smooth tannins. Following fermentation, the wine was matured on its fine lees for a period of two months, to enhance the volume and body in the resulting wine. Blending took place prior to bottling.

 

Tasting Note - This blend of Limnio and Moschomavro shows a complex bouquet, with gooseberry and blueberry from the Moschomavro grapes; and cherry, plum with hints of clove and cinnamon from the Limnio. Velvety smooth on the palate this has a wonderfully balancing acidity and an elegant finish.

 

Serving Suggestion - Exis Red is a versatile wine that accompanies appetisers, veal with mushrooms in red sauce, pasta dishes or cheese boards.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
