The first of its kind!


Why do we love it?

There are times when you are sitting quietly, and somebody brings you to taste something. And you taste it. Your eyes open wide at first sip. It can’t be, you think to yourself. And you re-taste it. And it's even better than before. You do not believe what you smell, and when you put it a little in your mouth it awakens taste buds that you did not even know that they were there.

The first of its kind!

It's so good that it will definitely pave the way for the next. At least it will force several producers to experiment. New winemakers, groundbreaking experimental methods, a wine that will leave history. Fysis 2017 by Athanasiou Winery from Nemea is the "absolute" expression of a variety and a terroir. It is the first natural wine produced by Agiorgitiko without any interference (absolutely). The harvest was excellent. A specific vineyard at an altitude of 350m in Achladia Nemea, with the oldest roots of the estate, was cultivated with great obsession and with organic methods. The best fruit was separated and treated with unprecedented care. 4-month maturation, no interference, and non-existent sulphites left the variety to do its own stuff. And it did.

After several years of testing, for the first time, the young Michalis Athanasiou has in his hands the result he wanted. And we tried it. And it's incredible. Soon you will see everyone writing about it. But it will be too late. Fysis 2017 will be sold out because it was released in just 1350 bottles.

And to be honest, everybody in Botilia’s team already shoved a case each in our cellars. Because everything suggests that it has a long way ahead. How long? We will tell you in a few years.









Tastes Like

Deep purple color in the glass.

Expressive nose with black cherry and berry leading the way followed by plum jam and dried strawberry. Ginger, paprika, cinnamon, and pepper give a spice-like feeling, while leather, tobacco, and chocolate complement the amazing bouquet.

On the palate, things are even more impressive. Full-bodied, with sharp acidity and beautifully rounded medium-intensity tannins. Sour cherry and berry dipped in cinnamon, pepper, and vanilla give the tone. Paprika, caramel, chocolate, and tobacco gradually make their appearance while the finish leaves a feeling of black tea and berry that insists on the impressively long-lasting aftertaste.

Put all spices, zest and pine nuts on the mortar and shred them. In a bowl add the tomato paste, the spices and the melted butter. In the milk, dissolve ¼ of the beef stock cube, mix and add to the mixture. After kneading for 5 to 7 minutes, we make kebabs in the corresponding shape. Put the kebabs in the refrigerator and leave for 1 hour. In a frying pan, mix all the ingredients of the sauce together and simmer until it thickens. Roast the kebabs and pitta breads on a charcoal grill or in the oven. After the kebabs are cooked, put them on the pitta breads by adding plenty of sauce, yogurt and chili flakes, preferably!
