History: His deep love for wine and the millennia-old winemaking tradition in his homeland prompted Nikolaos Zaharias to set up a small wine factory in 1946 and to realize his lifelong dream. In 2005, the year Muses Estate was founded, it was time for Nikos, Stelios and Panayiotis, the third generation to take their place in the family business. Their skills, scientific knowledge and youthful ideas, combined with experience, helped Muses Estate move one step further into the 21st century. The Muses Estates vineyards are located on the slopes of the Musental Valley and in many different locations such as Touriki, Lahos and Vrousalia.
Taste and Appearance: This wine, made from 100% Mouhtaro grapes, has a rather complex character, a mixture of fruity and spicy aromas. It leaves soft and delicate tannins on the palate, combined with a pronounced acidity. It is the pronounced acidity that gives the wine an aging potential of more than 10 years and gives the wine the chance to acquire more body and complexity.
