Fans of Barolo and red Burgundy will feel at home with a glass of this in their hand. It is high-toned and elegant, certainly for a wine made from Xinomavro, which can be a bit rustic and astringent. Aromas of loose tea leaves, kola nut, cherry and wet clay lead to a palate of sweet rhubarb and poached plums, showing a distinctly Mediterranean warmth of flavour on the finish. It’s approachable now, but will surely unfurl further layers of complexity over the next 5 to 8 years. It was aged for 18 months in large French and Austrian barrels, a quarter of which were new. 13,5% alc.. Drink now-2027.

Press Review:

Jancis Robinson MW: “Old vine Xinomavro. 18 months in large oak barrels – “we’re copying our friends in Burgundy” - Pale ruby. This does smell like red burgundy! Then there is a strong sort of schist grip on the palate. Hint of warm, ripe tomatoes. Lots of character and it should last well. Drink 2020-2027.” 17 points
