Why do we love it?

Natural Red 2017 of the Anatolikos Vineyards is the wine that definitely steals the show. Since its first appearance, Nikolaidis' natural red wine is the one that made big names blush!

Let's take the things from the beginning.

Mavroudi of Thrace (60%) and Limnio (40%) are organically cultivated in the absolutely dry privately owned vineyard on the sandy hills with the granite soil of the Hirodassos area in Avdira, Xanthi. Extremely difficult conditions cause plants to have a minimum yield per hectare and a unique concentration of their fruit juices. The harvest was done by hand at the end of September and here is where the interesting part starts. If you know Nikolaidis brothers you know that experimentation is in their blood. For the long fermentation of the blend, no oak barrel or even a tank was used. Clay amphorae hosted the grapes during fermentation and maturation. It goes without saying that the fermentation was done with wild, indigenous yeasts and the pressing of the grapes was done by hand. The very few precious juice remained in the amphora with the grape mac for another 270 days. There was absolutely no addition of sulphites at any stage of the process. Without any treatment, it was bottled unfiltered and remained in the bottle until the demanding brothers decided it was ready. And now it is.

It is still very young though. If you are patient enough for 3-4 years, it is almost certain it will evolve into one of the Finest Greek wines of your collection. Can you wait?

As the winemaking method has much spoilage, the bottles are very few, a little more than 1.000!

Deep purple color in the glass.

Nose of moderate (+) aromatic intensity that betrays its vinification: fresh soil, wet leaves, and truffle. Behind them dense, impermeable red and black fruit, such as cherry, raspberry, plum, blueberry complemented by marjoram, lavender, coffee, cocoa powder, and thyme.

Medium (+) volume body with amazing concentration, sharp acidity and moderate (+) but silky tannins. Fresh sour cherry, cranberry, cherry, plum pair with melted couverture, tea leaves, espresso, and gooseberry. With the second sip, ginger and cinnamon add extra sophistication points to the impressive set. The aftertaste is simply endless.

NATURAL RED 2017 - ANATOLIKOS VINEYARDS

PAIR IT

with meat in red sauce, bbq dishes or hunts.

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.
