Grapes: 80% Merlot, 15 % Limnio, 5 % Cabernet Sau-
vignon

Taste: Dark ruby color. Vanilla pudding and nougat aromas. Round, even berry, plum and custard tart flavors with pencil shaving and apple skins on the finish. Crisp finish, moderate tannins.
Serve: at 18C° – 20°C. A nice even food wine to serve with gourmet bacon burgers and gyros.

No pictures are seen of the copper stills for “tsipourou” and other distillates. I hope to show you in oktober 2009, after my visit to Mylopotamos.

The house is run by Father Epifanios who wrote The Cook Book of Yper Ygias Monastiriakes Syntages of Agiou Orous (Healthy Monastery Recipes of Mount Athos).
