From Naoussa, Macedonia wine region, Thymiopoulos 2018 Xinomavro is an unfiltered red wine produced from younger Xinomavro vines (around 15 years of age). Easy-to-enjoy, unoaked with rose petal, fresh cherry, ripe strawberry, anise and fine herbs on the palate. Lightly chill and enjoy with grilled lamb dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby wine with a fabulous aroma of strawberry, red currant, wet stone, raspberry, cherry, red plum and a hint of anise. Dry wine, medium high acidity, , medium body and alcohol, with minimal tannins. Red currant, red plum and wet stones dominated the palate. Pleasant to drink on its own and wonderful with aged cheddar.
