The result of hard work

It is time to meet Panagiotis Dimopoulos and his Konti Karydia. Know that it means Short Walnut Tree and it is not your typical red wine. It is the result of the work of a passionate amateur winemaker for whom it would be a shame to stay there only.

Panagiotis Dimopoulos has been making wine for himself and his friends for over 35 years. In 2014, after countless pushes and encouragement from those who tried it, and after his wines became a big hit in the area, fortunately he decided to see things more seriously. In the picturesque "Konti Karydia" area, in Xino Nero, Florina, he set up a beautiful boutique winery surrounded by the privately owned vineyards of the estate.

The Konti Karydia 2016 of the Dimopoulos Winery is an unusual blend. Xinomavro (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Montepulciano (20%). Low yields and an altitude of 600 m give excellent grapes and form the basis of a wine that uniquely reflects the terroir of the area. Each variety gets individually into a French oak barrel for 9 months and then meets the blend and goes into the bottle. Stunning finesse, balance and fruitiness show that Panagiotis Dimopoulos knows very well what he is doing. And the Konti Karydia 2016 is the red wine that justifies every choice.

It has medium purple color with ruby hues in the glass.

Elegant nose of moderate aromatic intensity with aromas of juicy cherry, fresh fig, plum and strawberry jam. Secondary, cinnamon, bacon, vanilla, butter and bitter chocolate complement the fine bouquet.

In the palate it has medium body and aromatic intensity, beautifully accompanied by moderate, round, tannins and refreshing acidity. The fruit is so juicy you can almost bite it. Sour cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, cocoa, espresso coffee, vanilla and pepper create a complex palate. The long-lasting spicy aftertaste remains in the palate for a while.

KONTI KARYDIA 2016 - DIMOPOULOS WINERY

PAIR IT

Pair with grilled steaks or burgers, smoked sausages or medium aged cheese

Pork chops with tomato jam and crispy leek

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and 6 extra tablespoons (for leek)
  • 1 fresh onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 ripe tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of mirin (or white wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar)
  • 4 pork chops (about 2 cm thick)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 leek (white part only) well washed

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and the garlic and cook until they become transparent, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and mirin (or vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar). Boil while stirring to moderate heat, until the mixture becomes almost dry or about 15 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Sauté until they get a nice golden-brown color, about 1.5 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a baking pan and roast them for about 5 minutes in the preheated oven.

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan. Chop the white part of the leek. Add the leeks to the hot olive oil and fry until crisp.
