Availability: Available within 3 work days
Dry, Still, Red, Xinomavro, Ages well, 12.7% alc.
At the Akratos winery in Halkidiki, they pay particular attention to the Greek varieties, so Xinomavro, the largest red variety of Northern Greece, could not be missing from their portfolio. Here we have a very affordable dimension of the variety that focuses on fruit and well-crafted tannins. A juicy Xinomavro that can be enjoyed fresh but also has the potential to get old for many years.
Its color is moderate ruby with several purple shades. Its aroma is dominated by fresh black and red fruits such as cherries and cranberries, sweet spices reminiscent of cinnamon and sun-dried tomato, with distinctive oak notes completing the aromatic profile. In the mouth is distinguished for his kindness as the tannins and alcohol are at moderate levels, the vivid acidity, the concentrated fruit and the long aftertaste. It is pleasantly enjoyed now enjoying the freshness of its character but it has the structure to evolve for a few years in the bottle. Opening the bottle half an hour before you enjoy it will help to unleash its aromatic potential.
