Thymiopoulos Young Vines Xinomavro 2019
As the name suggests, this is a youthful expression of the native Greek variety Xinomavro. Ripe fresh, raspberry flavours hit the palate with energy, followed by the fragrant aromatics of sweet spices and wild herbs. If you love Pinot Noir and Beaujolais, then this is right up your alley. It’s produced with a short maceration on skins in stainless steel, followed by 8 months in cement tanks.
For generations the Thymiopoulos family have been growing Xinomavro (pronounced See-no-mav-ro), the indigenous grape of the highly regarded Náoussa zone in Greece’s far North. Committed to organic and biodynamic farming, every wine they produce reflects the specificity of the parcel it originates from.
