Why do we love it?

Bold 2017 Karavitakis Winery is one of the most sought after wines in Greece. From those who were sold abroad, before they were even bottled. Fortunately, that has changed in the last two years for Bold. Our persistence and the tremendous demand of the public left no other option to Nikos Karavitakis and so this year we managed to secure a few bottles of this top-notch wine!

But let's take things from the beginning. Bold means straight-forward, intense, and well, bold. And they could not have chosen a name more suited than that. Concentrated, intense, with a steely backbone and robust tannic substance, Bold 2017 will cause a burst of explosions on your palate.

Tempranillo is the most famous Spanish variety and it participates in the famous Rioja wines. Its name comes from the word "Temprano", which in Spanish means "early" because it matures earlier 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 2017 Karavitakis Winery. The nectar follows a classic red vinification, with continuous punch-downs of the grape pulp at strictly controlled temperature (25-28°C). It is then allowed to mature for 24 months in 2nd use French and American oak barrels.

Bold 2017 Tempranillo Winery is a wine that combines herbal, floral, and oak notes that perfectly reflect the typical character of the variety. Whatever we say it is just words and they are not enough to describe this wines majesty.

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

BOLD 2017 - KARAVITAKIS WINERY

PAIR IT

with bbq, juicy pepper fillets or aged yellow cheese.

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.
