This wine took the name “Avdiros”, after the son of the god Hermes, who was from Opounda in Lokrida. According to Greek mythology, the demigod Heracles built the town of Avdira in Thrace, in memory of his friend Avdiros, when the last was killed during the fight with the wild horses of King Diomedes of Thrace. This label features the wild horse of Thrace. It is a particular blend of two Greek varieties (the oldest Greek variety, Limnio, meets the rare Greek variety Pamidi) and a foreign one (the French Syrah). The Syrah variety provides primary aromas of berries (freshness), while the Limnio variety, after eight to 12 months in a barrel, provides peppery aromas, as well as notes of cocoa and tobacco. Its taste is soft, with mild tannins and moderate acidity. A full-bodied wine with a pleasant aftertaste.
