TAOS is a red dry wine from Mavrodaphne grapes with a deep red color and ruby highlights. It has a complex nose that as long as the wine remains in the glass the aromas evolve. Its nose has hints of butter candy, red fruits, ink, spices and spicy aromas. You could compare the plethora of scents with the colors of the peacock’s tail, like the one on its label. On the mouth we have high acidity, velvety tannins, good density body, well-structured and a moderate peppery aftertaste. TAOS could be paired with cooked or grilled beef, grilled meat, but also with soft cheeses, white ripe/salty.

Parparoussis winery was founded in 1974, with the aim of producing bottled quality wines. The winery is located in Bozaitika, Patra. New French barrels are used for ripening and aging their wines. Most wines are produced from privately owned vineyards in Movri, Achaia, and Bozaitika in Patra. The emergence of the dry Mavrodaphne was a personal bet of Thanasis Parparousis. They use the classic red vinification method, the extraction lasts 30 days and then they allow the wine to age for 2 years in the barrel and two more in the bottle before being released on the market.
