Thymiopoulos Xinomavro

Notoriously tricky to grow, the xinomavro grape (pronounced ksee-NOH-mah-vroh) is the base for this smooth-drinking biodynamic red, from north-west Greece. And what a fine example it is. Bursting with ripe juicy fruit – think blackberries, damsons and gooseberry – it’s finished with a touch of spice. We’ll be drinking this fragrant bottle of wine throughout the winter months with roast lamb and cheese boards – ideally next to a roaring fire.
