2017 Thymiopolous Xinomavro 'Uranos'
100% Xinomavro grown and produced by our favorite, Apostolos Thymiopolous. The fruit comes from 40 year old vines, farmed biodynamically, on limestone and volcanic soils. Aged for 18 months in French and Austrian oak (25% new), this is a refined and understated Xinomavro with an elegant mid-palate, caressing texture and controlled tannins. The intensity of fruit, though, gives it a little distinction. It’s laced with ripe blueberries with an underlying hint of almond. If you’re looking for one of those rustic and earthy Xinomavros, this is not that style.
