Douloufakis 'Aspros Lagos' Cabernet Sauvignon

Aspros Lagos translates to White Hare a reference to the stunning small white flowers that appear on the dry stone walls that surround the vineyard. The fruit of the 'asperoula' is the Hares' favoured food! This Cabernet has a beautiful deep purple hue, its vanilla and leaf aromas are characteristic of a top Bordeaux Cabernet Franc dominated wine. The palate thoroughly underlines the wine's excellent pedigree. Plump blackcurrant, vanilla and crushed plums with glimpses of tannin, tobacco and leather. Surrounded by refreshing acidity, this is world class Cabernet Sauvignon!

Douloufakis Winery, Dafnes, Crete

The tradition and history of the Douloufakis family in vineyard cultivation and production started in 1930 when grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis first established a professional winery in the village of Dafnes in Crete. Today the business is continued by Dimitris’ grandson Nikolas Douloufakis who, having studied oenology in Italy (at Alba Intituto Agrario-Spezialitato in Diviticultura e Enologia) has renewed the production of superior quality wines from his own vineyards. The Douloufakis Winery vineyards are situated on hilly slopes at an altitude of 350 metres. They cover 10 hectares and are located within the region of Dafnes. The vine varieties planted are Vilana, Vidiano, Muscat of Spina, Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Syrah. Apart from privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from local farmers who cultivate their own vineyards in the same area. Douloufakis are famous for the production of the single-vineyard 'Aspros Lagos' Vidiano, a white cretan variety, as well as the PDO Liatiko red.
