EPIPHANIS: LOCAL ATHONIAN WINE…

by on 7 May 2016

Local from Mt. Athos… Epiphanis (Celebrated) Wine is produced from the vines in Mylopotamos, more than fifteen years old, and more specifically from the varieties Limnio and Merlot. It has a deep crimson color. In its bouquet we may discern dried plums, red fruits and spices. With respect to its taste, its body is robust with a supple structure, rich in tannins, in harmonious fusion, a balanced acidity and a prolonged sweet aftertaste.

A wine with a supple surface, promising a lot to the variety’s aficionados, who want to stock in their cellars wines older than ten years. Should you decant it to a carafe before serving, it will “open up” and offer you its full spectrum of aromas. Enjoy at 16o-18o degrees C.

The winemaking took place in temperature-controlled wine makers for three weeks. Following malo-lactic fermentation, it was settled and then aged for 24 months in new French oaken barrels.
