The Thymiopoulos family have been growing grapes in the Naoussa region of Greek Macedonia for generations, but it was Apostolos’ father Sergios who began growing them commercially to sell to local wineries. Whilst his father made a concerted effort to focus on improving quality, it was Apostolos himself who seized the opportunity to begin making wines under the family name. Having studied oenology in Athens he returned home and in 2003 he commenced production, with his first vintage released in 2005. From an early stage, Apostolos focused on the local Xinomavro grape, a red variety that gives wines which are pale in colour, yet high in tannins, somewhat akin to Nebbiolo. Looking to take advantage of the old bush vines his family owned, he sought to produce high-quality modern examples of this indigenous variety.

Grapes for this exclusive Thymiopoulos Vineyards white wine come from five to ten-year-old vines planted on limestone soils in the region of Imathia. They were handpicked in late August and early September and underwent fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, before being bottled unoaked. The result is a wine which perfectly marries the rich stone fruit and floral flavours of Malagouzia with the acidity and minerality of Assyrtiko, which adds freshness and complexity to the finish.

Tasting Note:
