    Winemaker Notes

    Complex, typical bouquet of red fruits and berries - cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla. Full mouth with rounded tannins and balanced acidity.

    Pairs perfectly with lamb, complements red meat, stew, grilled steaks, sausages, coq au vin, aged gouda or cheddar.

    Thymiopoulos, Greece
    The 100 square metres of Thymiopoulos vineyards are situated in the Valley of the Muses, which lies 60km east of the ancient site of Delphi. The vines here have an average age of 45 years, and produce between 800-900kg of grapes annually. This area benefits from the cooling winds that blow down from Mount Helicon." The soils in the Naousa are rich in clay and limestone, and the Thymiopoulos family has farmed their land here for several generations according the principals of biodynamics. All wines are fermented with wild yeast, and raised without any contact with oak.

    Naoussa is home to one of Greece’s most age-worthy reds: Xinomavro. Flourishing on the sun-exposed, southeastern-facing slopes of Mount Vermio between 700 to 1,700 feet in elevation, some say Xinomavro is Greece's red counterpart to its famous white, Assyrtiko. Others liken it to Italy's well-respected, highly perfumed and powerful, Nebbiolo.

    Native to Greece, Xinomavro is widely regarded the finest red wine of the country. Its name literally means “acid black”, and attains fullest potential in the country’s northwest region of Naoussa. These single varietal bottlings of Xinomavro (blending is not allowed here) are often compared to the fine Barolos of Italy for their structure, finesse and age-worthiness. While its vines are fickle and blue-black grapes grow in tight clusters, similar to Nebbiolo, Xinomavro actually appears unrelated. Somm Secret—The use of French oak can help tame Xinomavro but too much can overwhelm it. Some eschew oak entirely during winemaking; other producers use locally-grown walnut.
