A 10-year-old Xinomavro Rosé from the grape master that is Apostolos Thymiopoulos deserves a cinematic tribute. A fascinating wine that only unfolds and stretches in the most elegant, sensual and “I-woke-up-like-this” ways.
Grapes from the highest and coldest vineyards of Naoussa promise a vibrating acidity matched with a wonderfully rich nose of summer strawberry, dried papaya, candied orange, ginger glaze and a pinch of sweet spices topped with a generous rubbing of Mediterranean herbs and tomato leaf.
Absolutely inspiring! It’s amazing what 8 years in a dark cellar can do when Xinomavro grapes grow in the right hands.
What’s the oldest Rosé you’ve ever tried (and liked!)?
