Produced from 100% Xinomavro with the same aromas and tannic structure as from the Italian Nebbiolo wine grape. Fragrant on the nose with bright red cherry, citrus zest, rose petals and red berry aromas. Dry, medium-bodied with sweet red cherry, dried tobacco leaf, savoury herbs and subtle spicy flavours on the palate. Made for a roasted leg of lamb.

Xinomavro food pairings: pork tenderloin, charcuterie, lamb kebabs.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
