Why we love this wine?


Apostolos Thymiopoulos is well-known for his red wines, but if you haven't tasted Rose de Xinomavro, you simply do not know what you are missing! Once again, the subversive winemaker from Naoussa makes a rosé for the long run, that is not meant to be enjoyed only fresh. And that is why he chooses a dark bottle, instead of a transparent one.

Rose de Xinomavro origins shine since its tomato aromas intoxicate your nose from the first moment. On the palate, its Xinomavro true nature is more than obvious, with incredible structure, tannic substance, and crisp acidity.

Tasting

It has medium salmon color in the glass.

Expressive nose with dominating aromas of strawberry jam and tomato. Candied rose petals, cherry, raspberry, caramel, and quince nuances make up an interesting bouquet.

On the palate, it is medium-bodied, with soft tannins and high/crisp acidity that perfectly balances the oily texture. Ripe strawberry, sweet cherry, caramel, sun-dried tomato, and spicy notes fill your mouth with every sip. Toffee aftertaste that lasts.
