Thymiopoulos Rosé de Xinomavro 2021
Breaking the rule that rosés should only be drunk fresh, Apostolos Thymiopoulos creates a rosé from Xinomavro grapes that has great ageing potential. Spontaneously fermented, aged in large format oak for 4 months, unfined and unfiltered this wine is complex and on a different plane to your typical Rosé. It has an expressive nose with aromas of strawberry jam and sweet cherries, along with a palate that is both vibrant, structured and persistently fruity. A rosé that just gets better the longer you can hang on to it.
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.
