Nemea is a wine district in the Peloponnese peninsula in the south of Greece. The signature wine here is the red Nemea, produced entirely from the Agiorgitiko variety, which yields numerous styles of wine, from rosé to full-boded, tannic wines that age well. Vineyards here are planted at various intervals; those between 1300 and 2000 feet, which ensures good ripeness and acidity for full-bodied examples, while vines planted around 800 feet tend to be lighter in body. Some 85% of the plantings in Nemea are Agiorgitiko, while the rest is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, which must be labeled not as Nemea, but under the Peloponnese designation. (Wine/Appellations)
