Thymiopoulos, Jeunes Vignes Xinomavro 2020 Náoussa

16.5

100% Xinomavro. Harvest 19 September to 10 October 2020. 25% whole-bunch fermentation, then aged for eight months in concrete and stainless steel. Bottled 5 May 2021. RS 1.7 g/l, TA 6.8 g/l, pH 3.43, SO2 total 100 mg/l, SO2 free 25 mg/l.
Transparent ruby. Really interesting, distinctive, sweet ‘ashy’ nose with great balance and something floral too. Dusty finish that is far from unpleasant. Concrete effect on the grainy texture. This wine is really lively with minimal tannic effect at this stage. This would be a great teaching aid for the grape variety. VGV
