Why do we love it?

Nemea Old Vines of Papaioannou Estate comes to your mind automatically when you think of Agiorgitiko. Nemea Old Vines by Papaioannou is a top Agiorgitiko with unique complexity and concentration while having the best value for money ratio!

The family winery of Thanasis Papaioannou, in ancient Nemea, has been dealing with Agiorgitiko since 1876 and was one of the first in the area to engage in organic farming. Nemea Old Vines comes from a specific part of the vineyard with 40-year-old vines. The wine ages for at least 12 months in French oak barrels and for 12 months in the bottle. The dense red and black fruit is dressed with the spicy mantle of the barrel, giving one of the most typical and classic expressions of Agiorgitiko.

Drink it now or after 8-10 years.

NEMEA OLD VINES 2015 - ESTATE PAPAIOANNOU

PAIR IT

with beef bourguignon, slow cooked wild boar in red wine sauce with plums or pasta with rooster in red sauce (pastitsada).

Willd boar with vinsanto and citrus

1500 gr. wild boar


For the marinade
500 ml. wine vintage
200 ml. Red wine
1½ tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of balsamic
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon corn flour
2-3 rinds of tangerines, oranges, grapefruits, bitter orange
1 sprig of rosemary
2-3 cloves
4 berries of all spice
1 teaspoon of mixed peppercorns
Taragon
2 onions
80 gr. butter
Salt

For the marinade:
Wash and clean the wild boar very well, and remove any hairs.
In a pot, put all the ingredients of the marinade and mix well. Place the pieces of wild boar inside.
Cover with a towel and leave either in the fridge or in a cold, dry environment. Let the wild boar marinate for at least 12 hours.


Cooking:
Remove the meat from the marinade and keep it aside.
Put a large casserole to high heat and saute the meat.
Do not put any oily substance because the meat will release some liquids.
Once the liquids evaporate, add the butter and saute the meat until it gets an even, brown color.
Add the onions finely chopped or crushed. Once the onions get a golden color, pour in the marinade.
Lower the fire. Add salt and about 2 cups of hot water.
Braise the wild boar until the sauce thickens and the meat is tender.
Serve with brown rice with added pine nuts and raisins.
