Love, who oft amid the greatest / And the fairest wits art found… / Hast such deadly weapons’ might / That thou all men bringst to ground.
Erofili, that premium semi-dry liatiko! A rosé, inspired by the work of the same name of Georgios Chortatzis, perhaps the greatest poetic figure in Cretan literature, a poet equal to Shakespeare. A rosé on a par with the wines of Provence. Opening a bottle, the first aromas transport to another time, a time of intrigues and passion, princesses in palaces, unrequited, knightly love, chivalry and the choir sings the finest of aftertastes. A wine of such rosiness as the tender appearance of Erofili herself. A peak of taste and all the pathos of Panaretos (lover of Erofili) in a single bottle. Panaretos (the ‘ever-virtuous’ one) and our wine. A secret wedding of excellent raw materials and high-tech wine making. A wine that is produced using the saignée technique (bleeding) at 4 degrees for 10 hours, which is followed by the classic white wine making process. Strawberry aromas, cherry and sour cherry aromas spark the sensations and soften the palate. A story with a lot to take the breath away. A wine of complexity, sturdy body, balanced acidity and powerful aftertaste; a wine with a plot to weave. Our own Erofili takes us by the hand to initiate us into a winding wine path to pen a new story as the rising star of Agrunion of Heraklion. Tasted in international competitions, and always coming out on top.
