Greece is known for its wealth of culinary specialties, and wine is definitely one of the most popular. Described by poets and sung about by singers, the drink has always been part of Greek culture and is made from a variety of different grape varieties. An exquisite grape is Mavrodaphne: the variety was discovered more than 150 years ago and has since been the basis for strong dessert wines with an elegant, surprisingly dry character. The grape variety produces fruits that have a bouquet of black berries, leather, herbs and mineral notes.
For us, the Mavrodaphne grape only became meaningful when the Greek brewery Kykao decided to mature their latest work in disused wine barrels of the variety. To top off their classic English Barleywine, the brewers borrowed 17-year-old casks from their friends at Parparousis Winery. Over the course of 17 years, generations of Mavrodaphne wine have soaked the wood and given it an intense aroma. These flavor components were then passed on to the beer and enriched its repertoire with fruity fullness, herbs, earthy notes, vanilla and hints of leather, tobacco and minerals.
At the end of this odyssey there is a complex beer with an impressive range and sensual taste. The sporty 12.0% alcohol content gives the brew a fiery warmth and the finishing touch.
