Thymiopoulos, Alta Xinomavro 2019 Náoussa

17

'Alta' is sourced exclusively from the high-elevation vineyards of Fytia. 100% Xinomavro harvested 12 October. Aged for eight months in French oak vats and bottled July 2021. RS 1.6 g/l, TA 7 g/l, pH 3.4, SO2 total 98 mg/l, SO2 free 28 mg/l.
Pale ruby. Lightweight, almost like being brushed by a feather. But beautifully balanced, with a light dusty aroma and very ready to enjoy. I don’t see the firm tannins referred to by The Wine Society. It’s just there, now – to be lapped up! Great purity on the finish. I found it impossible to spit out. VGV
