Methymnaeos Red 2019

Availability: In stock


Dry, Still, Red, Chidiriotiko, Keep for 2-3 years, 12% alc.

Three wines, red, white and orange Methymnaeos, made from just one red variety, the rare Chidiriotiko. Winemaker Yannis Lambrou chooses classic red vinification techiques to produce red Methymnaeos, the most 'conventional' of his three wines. Moderately scented, with earthy minerality and hints of red fruit. Give it time in the glass to open up and unfold its distinct personality.

Moderate color with brick hues. Weak presence of red fruit, earthy notes reminiscent of leather and peppery minerality. Dry texture, as well as freshness combined with volume and tannins give the wine a solid structure. Moderate in length with an interesting aftertaste. A wine giving value to the concept of nativeness. Drink it over the next 2-8 years.

Producer Methymnaeos
Producer's Description Appellation: Protected Geographical Indication Lesvos

Varietal Composition: 100% Chidiriotiko grapes

Production Techniques: Fermentation lasts about three weeks. Wine ages in French oak for four months.

Characteristics: Ruby color. Bouquet typical of the Chidiriotiko grape, combining aromas of muscat, honey and red roses with tones of forest fruit and cinnamon. Lightly oaky. Distinct, earthy minerality, stemming from the volcanic soil of western Lesvos where the vines are grown.

Η άποψη του Ντίνου Στεργίδη
Δημοσιογράφου Οίνου, Εκδότη

Οι πιο πρόσφατες εσοδείες του ερυθρού Μεθυμναίου, 2010 και 2011, είναι σίγουρα οι καλύτερες μέχρι σήμερα, με πανέμορφα λαμπερά κόκκινα-γκρενά χρώματα, φρουτώδη χαρακτήρα, με ταννίνες έντονες, καθαρές και βελούδινες σε ένα στυλ «μεσογειακής Βουργουνδίας», όπου το φρεσκοτριμμένο πιπέρι παντρεύεται με αρώματα σχίνου και άφθονες ορυκτώδεις νότες. Μιλάμε για κρασιά που δίνουν την αίσθηση της ελαφρύτητας, παρά το γεγονός ότι είναι αρκετά υψηλόβαθμα (13,5°-14°) και δεν σε κουράζουν όταν τα πίνεις. Εκτιμώ πως επιδέχονται παλαίωση, με την έννοια πως θα βελτιωθούν με το πέρασμα του χρόνου, αναπτύσσοντας νέα, πιο πολύπλοκα αρώματα δίχως να απογυμνώνονται γευστικά.

Methymnaios Red
Review by Riccardo Albieri (Posted on 08/03/2021)

Light ruby in colour.
The nose gives hints of red fruit, wood and a bit of cinnamon.
The mouthfeel has medium body and too much acidity in my opinion. Slightly spiced with hints of pepper and oak.

good wine
