Mavrodaphne is supposed to be a red wine. But your page says white and now I;m worried that there is a mistake and am afraid to order before i know fore certain that this is the wine I'm looking for.
This is one of those rare finds that you hoard and keep for specail occasions or when you want to impress. Reminds of a good porto - it kind of sneaks up on you - give it a minute and it opens up like a flower. Not the taste of a good brandy really, but definately the feel; rich, powerful without being overpowering, sweet but not syrup sensation - lots of depth tempered by undertones of earth and plum. If you use this for sangria as the sellers notes suggest, you're missing the point entirely!
I was given Mavrodophue sweet red wine 'Kourtaki" was on the bottle I live in southern CA where can I buy this win. Thank you Sandra This was a Christmas gift in Northern Ireland.
one of the most unusual wines I have ever experienced and yet one that you will crave more of. When it initially hits your palate you will not know if it is pleasant because it is so different than what you are accustomed to in a desert wine. But give it a minute to develope, and you will be hooked! It is exquisite. I always have a bottle on hand but I am guilty of keeping it for special occasions to enjoy with family and friends. I first experienced this a a food world showcase and loved it so much I went back to write down the name and vinyard so I could hunt it down. Lucky for me I found a man willing to search it out and order it for me. It is not readily accessible at your local retailers, at least not in Kansas City. By the way this is a great price too!
Sweet red wine from Patras. A ruby-red color; an intense and rich nose redolent of black raisins: a full-bodied, rounded palate showcases the sweetness of dried raisins; the mouth is filled with marvelous Mavrodaphne notes, while the tongue receives a welcome surprise in the guise of this intensely pleasurable versatile wine. Culinary match: Fruit platters and yellow cheeses; also the perfect accompaniment to chocolate delights. Enjoy as an aperitif or dessert wine but, above all, use as the basic ingredient in homemade sangria.
