Thymiopoulos Xinomavro

Thymiopoulos Xinomavro

The Thymiopoulos family have been growing grapes in the Naoussa region of Greek Macedonia for generations, but it was Apostolos’ father Sergios who began growing them commercially to sell to local wineries. Whilst his father made a concerted effort to focus on improving quality, it was Apostolos himself who seized the opportunity to begin making wines under the family name. Having studied oenology in Athens he returned home and in 2003 he commenced production, with his first vintage released in 2005. From an early stage, Apostolos focused on the local Xinomavro grape, a red variety that gives wines which are pale in colour, yet high in tannins, somewhat akin to Nebbiolo. Looking to take advantage of the old bush vines his family owned, he sought to produce high-quality modern examples of this indigenous variety.
This is an expressive bouquet filled with aromas of ripe strawberries, cherries, and sweet spices. The juicy palate exhibits richness and complexity, offering delightful flavours of red berries, dried figs, and earthy notes with a hint of sage.
