About the Wine
Xinomavro is the main red grape used in northern Greece, where it's regarded as the finest fruit for making elegant red wines.
This offering from Thymiopoulos is just that - an elegant and fine red. It entices you with fragrant aromas of red berries, then surprises with a one-two hit of tannin and acidity.
If you've never had the pleasure of enjoying a Xinomavro, this one is a reasonably priced entry point. It might be hard to pronounce, but its certainly easy to drink!
Apostolos Thymiopoulos is one of the key wine producers in the region of Naoussa, north central Greece, biodynamically cultivating fascinating wines, predominantly from the thick skinned red grape Xinomavro (he makes ten different versions!)
His family has been tending wines in and around the village of Trifolos for generations. Since his first release under the Thymiopoulos label in 2005 he has farmed biodynamically and made wines traditional - unfined, unflitered aged in vats and barrels.
