Eurynome

According to the oldest of Greek myth, life began with the goddess Eurynome. Having nowhere to rest, she split sky from sea, then danced gracefully on the waves, birthing the elemental entirety of the earth; uniting wisdom and divinity. Her namesake wine is the result of equally comprehensive winemaking.

Eurynome red


RED 2013
MADE WITH ORGANIC GRAPES

  • Chatzivaritis winery (Goumenissa, Greece)
  • Grape Varieties: Xinomavro 70% – Negoska 30%
  • Appellation: PDO Goumenissa
  • ALC15.2% BY VOL

The vivid acidity of highly esteemed Greek Xinomavro (acid-black) grape is
softened by the pleasantly aromatic Negoska. Matured in oak barrels for 12
months, and then 6 months longer in the bottle, the result of this aging is an
aromatically complex wine, predominantly scented by bramble fruits, finely
nuanced with notes of spice, tomato, olive, and vanilla. Full bodied on the
palate, aromatic, richly tannined, and with an enduring finish.


  • 90+ POINTS by Mark Squires of Robert Parker (Eurynome red 2013)
    Excerpt: “It combines finesse, structure and aging ability.” “Right now, it is impressive…”
  • 91 POINTS by Christy Canterbury (MW) (Eurynome red 2013)
    Excerpt: “Bright auburn in color, this delicately aromatic wine has more gusto on the palate than its nose suggests. Crisp acidity and crunchy tannins back its full body. The generous layers on the palate include mulberries, blueberries, fallen autumn leaves and cigar smoke.”
