  • Red:Greek wine
Produced and bottled by Apostolos Thymiopoulos, this exclusive red wine is made from Xinomavro, a grape variety native to Naoussa which has come to be recognised as one of Greeceā€™s most significant red varieties. Traditionally the wines are pale in colour, yet high in tannins, somewhat akin to Italy's Nebbiolo. Grapes for the wine come from fifteen to twenty-five-year-old vines planted on schist and limestone-clay soils in Naoussa. They were handpicked in late September and early October and underwent fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with 25% whole bunches used, before being bottled unoaked. Belying the pale colour, this wine packs in plenty of character, offering dark fruit, tobacco and black olive flavours alongside a bracing acidity and a bold tannic structure.
