An impossible wine to find in Greece!

SEND PAGE TO FRIEND

Why do we love it?

It is one of the most sought-after wines in Greece. The one you try at each of the exhibitions in which Karavitakis Vineyards participate and you can’t hide your disappointment when you want to find out where you can buy it and the answer is that it is all pre-purchased and shipped to America. Maybe it happened to you again in the last Oinitika exhibition in which it was clearly the protagonist. This time, we tried our best and succeded in keeping a few of the Bold 2014 of the Karavitakis Vineyards bottles in Greece and exclusively at botilia.gr (you can thank us afterwards ...).

But let's take things from the beginning. Bold means intense and well, bold. And they could not have chosen a name more suited than that. Concentrated, intense, with a steel backbone and robust tannic substance, Bold 2014 will cause a burst of explosions on your palate.

Tempranillo is the most famous Spanish variety and it participates in the famous Rioja wine. Its name comes from the word temprano, which in Spanish means early, because it matures faster than the other local varieties! Tempranillo was perfectly acclimatized in the Pontikiana of Chania, giving under the supervision of the experienced Manolis Karavitakis, the perfect raw material for the Bold 2014 of the Karavitakis Vineyards. The nectar follows a classic red vinification, with continuous dipping of the grape pulp at a strictly controlled temperature (25-28 ° C). It is then allowed to mature for 24 months in 2nd use French and American barrels.

Prepare for a wine that combines herbs, fruit and oak notes that perfectly reflect the typical character of the variety. Whatever we say it is just words. Get ready for a shock.

Keep a bunch of room in your cellar because it can stay there for at least 10 years.

Beef stew with red wine

  • 1 kg of boneless beef cut into bits
  • 4 tbsps. flour
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 cup of dry red wine
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp. dry thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pack of small fresh mushrooms, whole
  • baby carrots
  • salt
  • pepper

 

 

Wipe the meat with kitchen paper to absorb excess moisture. Stir in a bowl 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, paprika and pepper and sprinkle the meat with the flour mixture.

Sautee the meat in hot olive oil in moderate to strong heat, stirring frequently,  for 4-6 minutes or until it acquires a golden brown color. Remove the meat from the pot. Add the red wine, stirring well to incorporate with the meat residues from the bottom of the pot.

Put the meat back in the pot and add the broth, thyme, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Once it starts boiling, cover the pot, lower the heat in half and allow the meat to cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally. You can accompany your meat with wild rice.
