Greek (Cretan) Red wine


Greek Red wine

Colour is one of the most easily recognizable characteristics of wines. For red wines we use red grapes.

Since pigments (anthocyanins) are found in the skin of the grape, not in the juice, the colour of the wine depends on the method of vinification and the time the must  remains in  contact with those skins. The duration of extraction is the key to the quality of red wine and its characteristics. For the production of wines that will be consumed fresh, extraction is short. Wines for aging need  longer extraction.

Greek red wines are usually paired with red meats, grilled or baked, ham, yellow cheese and smoked food.
