Thymiopoulous Xinomavro

Xinomavro is the main quality red of northern Greece, where the mountains are high and vineyards cool. Though it is a thick-skinned grape, it can show lots of lovely bounce and energy, and that is the case for this young vines release from the biodynamically-inclined Apostolos Thymiopoulos.

There's no oak involved here, it would just be unwanted participant in this orgy of black and red fruits, alpine herbs and and some light, gravelly tannins.
