Myesis 2017 - Domaine Foivos

Varieties: Μαυροδάφνη , Θειακό, Αρακλινό
Region: Ιόνιο Πέλαγος
Red dry wine; Protected Geographical Indication Slopes of Ainos, Kefalonia.

Its name refers to the initiation in the mystical world of wine, from its mythical creator, Dionysus (Bacchus) till present day connoisseur wine-maker Foivos and his guests. Main variety Mavrodaphne, together with small Kefalonian red varieties (Theiako, Araklino).

Intense red color; pleasant bouquet with complex aromas of gooseberry, dark plum and ripe cherries jam, combined with noble spices (cinnamon – cloves) flavors and hints of oak; rich tannins in harmony with a characteristic fresh acidity; finishes with peppery notes.

It dominates as escort of all kinds of meat in creative cuisine; underlines all pasta and cheeses; ideal starter for a social relationship, and perfect companion for anyone to drink it alone or with others.

Ratings: MYESIS 2012: Wine Advocate" April 2016: 85/100.                                                                                                                                   MYESIS 2015: "Wine Advocate" 2018: 87/100: “the 2015 Myesis has finesse, a fresh feel, and it's full of flavor, with complexity                     around the edges. It adds a little dried cherry and raspberry mingled with some herbs. This is something you can drink a bit cooler                 than normal. It has a summer-red feel to it, but there's reasonably good structure”.                                                                                     MYESIS 2014: Jancis Robinson 2019: 15,5/20: “ Deep crimson. Initially quite reductive (smoky/rubbery) on the nose, and a touch                 of coffee, which I think is from the oak. There's lovely dark fruit underneath but it is rather overwhelmed by the oak – in terms of                 sweetness and thickness of texture – though the tannins are smooth.”
