Unfilteres Xinomavro 2013

Some good earthy notes with muted cherry or blackberry notes, and good body in the mouth. Maybe some floral aromas as well (violets?). — 6 years ago

Reserve Old Vines Xinomavro 2018

asked the missus to open a red one 🙈

she picked the last one from our travel in greece.
mind-blowing xinomavro as usual.
the strong yet integrated tannins made it clear what 🍇 it is.

red and black 🍒, ripe raspberry, clove and allspice and some dirt.

nice med + acidity.
medium body.

long long long 🎯

superb.

Extra Cuvée de Réserve Brut Nature Xinomavro 2017

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Continuing our commitment to only drinking Greek wine on this trip, this Blanc de Noir made from Xinomavro was a fun way to start our meal at Salis. The zero dosage was…obvious and the phenolic bitterness was about as much as I can recall in a wine. But with some grilled octopus, this blossomed. Notes of stone fruits, underripe raspberry and loads of minerals. Acid was off the charts. Disgorged December 2022 — 7 months ago
