Rose, Dry, Still wine, Xinomavro, Biodynamic, PGI Imathia
A complex, with intense aromas, wine by Apostolos Thymiopoulos, which worth enjoying immediatly or even two years leater and maybe more.
Apostole Thymiopoulos is experimenting and innovating, giving us perhaps the most distinctive rosé wine of the Greek vineyards. The young vines Xinomavro's from the private vineyard in the PDO area of Naoussa, are ultra-dense planted thus they yield extremely low quantities. The cultivation is based on biodynamic principles and the harvest is late, at the end of October or even early November. The concentrated and rich in sugars of the grape must is fermented at low temperatures and then aged in large oak barrels, producing wine high in alcohol, full body, rich aroma and flavor complexity, dominated by strawberry and tomato while the characteristic acidity of the variety is tempered. It can be served with seafood dishes and fatty fish such as tuna and salmon, it will surprise you paired with grilled meat with light sauce or even with traditional Greek dishes, such as stuffed tomatoes, fresh green beans and moussaka. It can also be served as an aperitif. Serve it cold, so it can be refreshing, or even in room temperature, to enjoy its full aromatic complexity. Ready to drink now and will remain so for at least 2 more years.
