Gi kai Ouranos Xinomavro 2017

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This glass was poured from Coravin. A fun, predominantly red fruited Xinomavro that has an interesting sweet corn sort of thing going on. Red fruits and leather. Structure is firm but well managed and not punishing. Balanced. A few years of age and Coravin may have played a role in development. — 8 months ago

@Peter van den Besselaar I have read that some compare Xinomavro to Nebbiolo and, in theory, I get it. In practice, I have yet to have a Xinomavro stir my soul like Nebbiolo can. Perhaps that will come with time.

KAYAFAS Xinomavro 2018

Poured into a decanter about 30min prior to service. The 2018 Thymiopoulos Vineyards “Kayafas” is one of their single-vineyard expressions of Xinomavro. The fruit is sourced from their lowest altitude vineyard, sees extended maceration (40 days); partially whole cluster. It pours a beautiful deep ruby/purple color with a near opaque core. Medium viscosity with very light staining of the tears. On the nose, the wine is very pretty with notes of strawberries, tart cherries, plums, dried green herbs, stony earth minerals and some subtle warm spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. The notes from the nose are confirmed. Alcohol is medium. The finish is long. While certainly unique, it has one foot in Burgundy and one foot in Piemonte. A marvelous pairing with seared duck breast with beetroot risotto.

I adore this botlle. Was my first date with a Greek wine. And indeed, this can be associated to Burgundy Pinot Noir or Barbaresco Nebbiolo

Naoussa Xinomavro 2015

Meaty, iodine, & red currant on the nose. Palate much more opulent than expected. Different but slightly less enjoyable than the Thymiopoulos. — 3 years ago
