Why do we love it?
Foundi Estate from the winery of the same name unfolds in your glass the greatness of the Xinomavro variety. The wine-growing zone of Naoussa can only produce great wines. This particular one is also ready to drink, which means you should feel pretty lucky since you won't have to count down the time until you can finally enjoy it!
 
Foundi family has a long history of cultivating vineyards, which belong to the Naoussa PDO zone. In 1992 and just 4 kilometers outside of Naoussa Imathia, the family winery was founded, while their first vineyards from Xinomavro were already planted in 1930. Over time, cultivation evolved both in terms of land and new technologies that were applied to the vineyard, culminating in a single path, the production of unique quality wines, with great aging potential. Something similar happened with the Foundi Estate, which comes from a specific vineyard of 6 acres, in the Karaoutsa location at an altitude of 200 meters. Aging in French oak barrels for a year before bottling gave it complexity and a delicate spicy profile, without masking its fruity aromatic dimension, which was enhanced by remaining in the bottle for another year before its release in the market.
 
If you like Xinomavro with many tannins and fine aromas of spices and wood but also want the balance of juicy red fruit, then you will enjoy this wine a lot. And since these jackpots are not to be missed, grab some for a little extra aging! You'll thank us!

Tastes Like
In the glass, it is deep ruby with grenache highlights. An intense aromatic character with ripe red fruits dominating. Ripe strawberry, sour cherry, plum, and red cherries, with hints of tomato paste, vanilla, and coffee. Then notes of cloves, black pepper, spice, and cinnamon compose a complex and pleasant result.
 
Full body with lots of velvety tannins and wonderfully balanced acidity. Red fruits are also intense on the palate, with red cherry, red berry, strawberry jam, and sun-dried tomato framed by spicy notes of spice, vanilla, tobacco, and cocoa. The aftertaste is long and quite enjoyable.

KTIMA FOUNDI 2019 - FOUNDI ESTATE

PAIR IT

Pair it with spice-roasted veal, oven-baked veal brisket, and charcoal-grilled rib eye with spicy sauce.

Beef stew with smoked eggplant cream

For the stew
700g beef for stew
2 onions
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon tomato paste
400 g concasse tomatoes
1 teaspoon of sugar
500 ml beef stock
1 cinnamon stick
4 berries of allspice
½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon of fresh thyme
40 ml of extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
Salt

For smoked eggplant cream
3 eggplants (400 g eggplant puree)
30 g flour
50 g butter
350 ml. lukewarm milk
Nutmeg
Salt

For the smoked eggplant cream:

Pierce the eggplants with a fork and char them on an open fire or on the grill until soft. When ready, put them in a strainer and leave them until you prepare the bechamel.

In a heated saucepan, add the butter and once melted, add the flour by stirring constantly, until it gets a light brown color. Then add the milk and reduce the heat, while stirring until it thickens. At the same time, peel the eggplants, mush them with a fork and add them into the bechamel. Finally, add pepper, nutmeg and salt. Stir for about 2 minutes and remove from heat.

For the stew:

Chop the onions and garlic. In a large, deep frying pan, sautée the meat in olive oil, a few pieces at a time, to keep the oil temperature high. Once it is evenly browned add the onions and garlic.

Add the spices, tomato paste, sugar, salt, pepper and finally the tomatoes. Simmer for about 1 hour or until the meat has softened and the sauce has thickened.

Serve by placing the eggplant cream topped with the beef stew and the luscious sauce.

Recipe Notes:

- Beware, do not burn eggplants because they will acquire a strong, heavy taste
- We can use cream instead of milk for a richer taste
- Adjust the spices and their quantities according to your preference
