Thymiopoulos Vineyards Xinomavro 2019
Produced and bottled by Apostolos Thymiopoulos, this exclusive red wine is made from Xinomavro, a grape variety native to Naoussa which has come to be recognised as one of Greece’s most significant red varieties. Traditionally the wines are pale in colour, yet high in tannins, somewhat akin to Italy's Nebbiolo. Grapes for the wine come from fifteen to twenty-five-year-old vines planted on schist and limestone-clay soils in Naoussa. They were handpicked in late September and early October and underwent fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, with 25% whole bunches used, before being bottled unoaked. Belying the pale colour, this wine packs in plenty of character, offering dark fruit, tobacco and black olive flavours alongside a bracing acidity and a bold tannic structure. Baby Barolo!

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
The first bottle opened and I did not enjoy. Today 10th Jan 2021, I opened my second bottle.
The wine for me is very much food dependent.
Drinking with ripe goats cheese opened up the flavours of the wine and became very enjoyable
This is a fabulous red wine and an amazing discovery! I recommend it!!!
