Mercouri Estate Belvedere is a distinguished sweet wine crafted from sun-dried Malvasia grapes and aged in French oak barrels. This meticulous process imbues the wine with a depth and complexity that reflect the rich heritage of the estate. The sweetness from the residual sugar is perfectly balanced by Malvasia's naturally high acidity. With a very limited production, this is an ideal wine for special occasions or as a unique gift.
