NAOUSSA ALTA XINOMAVRO 2016
THYMIOPOULOS VINEYARDS

The incredible Naoussa Alta Xinomavro, made by the region's best producer Apostolos Thymiopoulos, is sourced from his highest-altitude vineyards, and offers a wonderfully pure, Burgundy-like expression of this superb indigenous grape variety.

  • Lifted aromas of redcurrant, rose petals, liquorice and delicate earthy spices.
  • Beautifully elegant and silky; texture like top-quality Chambolle-Musigny.
  • The 'Alta' vineyard at 1800ft is very cool at night and snow-covered in winter.
  • Drink up to 5 years after release.
  • Match with slow-roasted shoulder of lamb, or mushroom risotto.
