Notes from Thymiopoulos:
"Throughout the winemaking process, we do our best to render the original expression of each vineyard and vintage. Choosing the right time to harvest allows us to have perfectly ripened, small berried and aerated, healthy grape clusters. Destemmed or not, grapes start to ferment with spontaneous yeasts. Meanwhile, a long period of maceration starts. The wine is then transferred into large oak barrels. We want our wines pure and authentic, not overwhelmed by the impact of a vessel. Minimum intervention during the whole vinification process and “élevage”, allows us to bottle an authentic expression of Xinomavro and its place of origin".
