Tasting Notes

Thymiopoulos’ flagship wine and the first ever label produced. This wine is a blend of the best parcels of the estate, 44 years old, certified organic. 70% are located around Trilofos village. 30% come from the surroundings of Fytia village.

Warm climate tempered by the Mediterranean winds and by the air flowing down from Vermio mountain play a determinant role in the ripening period, protecting the grapes by maintaining low temperatures. High altitude and big diurnal range around Fytia village add complexity and finesse to the blend.

Grape variety: 100% Xinomavro. 

Vinification: The grapes are 60% de-stemmed, macerated for 40 days and fermentation has been completed with indigenous yeasts. Maturation takes place for 18 months in third-use, 500-litre French oak barrels.
