Apostolos Thymiopoulos – Thymiopoulos Xinomavro (another Greek red)

gre

Geoff bought this round at the weekend. M&S, about £11, 13.5%. Xinomavro (‘acid/sour black’) is the grape. I didn’t spot it, obviously. Not a bit sour or black, Burgundian pale, bright, perfumed ‘Turkish Delight’ nose – probably not what they were aiming for – plenty of soft tannin giving grip and structure. Cherry, plums on the palate but also plenty of savouriness. Needs to be served chilled. Lovely wine. Have ordered the more upmarket cuveé from the WS as a comparison.
