MRS Red, Manousakis - 2022

Item # 49426 750mL

MRS is short for the winery, Manousakis, and the blending of two local grapes: Romeiko (30%) and Syrah. Romeiko is a little-known grape that has been grown on the island for centuries and can be found as a red or white wine and everything in-between. This is a full-bodied red wine you can pair with an orzo and beef stew.

Staff Pick Notes

This is a very pleasant wine from the island of Crete in Greece. Delicious with aromas of blackberries and cranberries, smokey flavors and a balanced acidity. Romeiko, an indigenous grape from Crete and the well known Syrah, blend very well together. Both grapes ferments in stainless steel tanks. After that, Romeiko spends some time in barrels while Syrah ages in stainless steel tanks. The influence of oak is noticeable but not overwhelming and, in fact, creates balance and smoothness to the wine, adding at the same time a delicate vanilla finish.. I would pair it with roasted red meats but It would work well with pasta dishes also.

Glossary

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
