Yin and Yang of Greek wine!

Why do we love it?

Xinomavro - Moschomavro Belidis Estate is a clear reflection of Yin and Yang. It describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Yin's role, which symbolizes "the dark side" is Xinomavro while in the role of Yang, which is the "bright side", is Moschomavro. In an equal ratio (50% - 50%), they coexist, interact, and offer us perhaps the ultimate balance. Xinomavro has something old, classic, and historical, it brings tannins, structure, and complexity. Moschomavro has something new, fresh and vivid, it brings finesse and floral aromas.

Belidis Estate was founded in 2004 by Apostolos and Eleni Belidis, in Melissia, Kozani. Now the reins have taken over their children, Christos and Miltiadis. The 100 acres of organic vineyards, at an altitude of 300-400 meters, in carefully chosen sites, based on their orientation and their soil, give wines of unique character and unrivaled quality. Xinomavro - Moschomavro 2015, as you probably have already understood, is the diamond of the estate. The two varieties fermented separately and then they were blended and aged in French oak barrels like Ermitage and Berthomieu, for one year. After bottling, it continues its aging process in the bottle, in the wine cellar of the estate, until it is ready to get to you.

Yes, Xinomavro - Moschomavro 2015 Belidis Estate is one of those wines destined for comfort dishes like mousaka.

BELIDIS RED 2015 - BELIDIS ESTATE

PAIR IT

Pair it with stuffed eggplants with minced meat and bechamel, slow braised lamb with tomato sauce and orzo, rabbit stew with onions

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.
