Aivali Deux Dieux (Two Gods) '20 0.75lt
Deux Dieux 2020 from Aivali Winery, is a wine with unparalleled finesse and terrifying concentration, which can look into the eyes of behemoths of the world vineyard.
The original blend has it all and shows that this pair is here to stay. Syrah gives tannins, acidity and a peppery character, Agiorgitiko finesse and juicy red fruit. With undivided attention to the vine, the Syrah yielded only 240 kg/acre, while the yield of Agiorgitikos, from the Alikiza region, did not exceed 320 kg/acre. The old vines, dry and deprived of fertilization for years, gave all their juice to their few bunches.
The two varieties are vinified separately and their precious juice matures for 30 months in new French oak barrels from the Allier forest. After they are blended, Deux Dieux rests for a few months in the bottle before reaching your glass. They claim they did it to give him a 10 year life ahead of him and they are probably right. Deux Dieux 2020 is shocking now, but it will become dazzling in the years to come.
