MUSES ESTATE 'CHRISOLITHOS' MERLOT, GREECE 2019
Varietal: 100% Merlot
What's so Special: His deep love for wine and the millennia-old winemaking tradition of his homeland led Nikolaos Zaharias to found a small winemaking facility in 1946 and fulfill his life-long dream. At that time, in a village of about 1.500 inhabitants, 7 winemaking units were in operation. In 1967, his son, Athanasios Zaharias, entered the family business and gave it a new impulse by implementing dynamic and forward-looking ideas. With his contribution, the small artisanal winery was gradually transformed into a modern winemaking unit. In 2005, Muses Estate was created and the third generation of winemakers took their place in the family business.
Tastes Like: A fantastic deep purple red color. An explosive nose exhibits some notes of fresh red fruits (red currant, cherry). An intense palate showing black fruits, warming spice and soft tannins. Well made, enjoyable and serious wine.
