Belvedere

Naturally Sweet, White Wine

The sweet wine Belvedere is naturally produced using sun-cured grapes of a variety called Malvasia
Aromatic. The alcoholic fermentation is interrupted at the desired point with refrigeration and, afterwards,
the wine matures for one year in new French Vosges oak barrels. With a golden blond colour and orange
highlights and with a prolific presence of bergamot, orange peel and honey it constitutes an impressive
dessert wine. Annual production is about 1,200 bottles with the potential of keeping the wine for at least 4
to 5 years. Residual sugar 80 gr/l.

Place of production: Mercouri Estate’s vineyards on the western coast of the Peloponnese, near Ancient Olympia
Method of production: After harvest, the grapes dry in the sun for approximately 5-8 days, before fermentation. It is a naturally sweet wine, fermented under strict temperature control and aged for 12 months in new French Vosges casks.
