60 year old vine Xinomavro from Macedonia, with juicy red fruit and potential to age
What started in 1997 as a fresh expression of Greek wine is now one of the most progressive wineries in the country. Research and development programmes dedicated to unlocking the potential of Xinomavro. The area is marked by cold winters and warm summers, but the four surrounding lakes create a unique mild mesoclimate. As a result, we get high fruit concentration and ripeness with exquisitely complex and rich aromas.
Tasting Note: Bright red colour, fruity aromas, rich and complex character on the palate, refreshing acidity, lingering aftertaste. Intense aromas of wild strawberry and cherry entwine with fine herbal hints, while on the palate the pronounced freshness balances with the ample body, offering a wine ready to be enjoyed now, but also suited for long time aging.
