Rosé de Xinomavro, Thymiopoulos 2013

Rose Wine from Greece
0 star rating 0 Reviews
An extremely rare single-vineyard xinomavro rosé. After ten days of maceration, it spent four years in second-use 500-litre French oak barrels, resulting in a deeply coloured rosé with aromas of dried blood orange, cranberry and sundried tomato, and a full, textured palate.

If you're looking to push the boat out and intrigue your fellow revellers, look no further than [this wine], made by this year's Decanter Rising Star award winner Apostolos Thymiopoulos in Macedonia, northern Greece. Oak then bottle age, along with the xinomavro grape, make for one of the most intriguing and complex roses on the market. It's nuts - but at least you won't be ringing in the new year with boring wine. (It also comes with a built-in New Year's resolution.: life's too short for bland rosé.)

Very much orange rather than pink. Transparent. Look at that age! Smooth and full of interesting fruit with just the right amount of acidity. Really distinctive. Full of body and flavour. Dry, but not...

in mid-October. I sat on Apostolos Thymiopoulos's veranda, tasting his glorious tawny 2013 Rosé de Xinomavro, a wine for which I would happily pay the £30 The Wine Society is asking,

By far the most interesting and complex rosé I’ve tried in recent times is made from local red grape xinomavro by the inventive Greek winemaker Apostolos Thymiopoulos. Unusually for a rosé, it’s been aged for almost a decade, in a mixture of stainless steel tank and oak barrels: it’s gently grippy in texture, with notes of dried citrus peel and tangy cherry, and it’s superbly versatile at the dinner table.

An absolutely superb single-vineyard aged rosé from star Greek producer Apostolos Thymiopoulos. Complex, robust, textural and long, with fleshy pink grapefruit, candied blood orange, cranberry and filigreed herbal notes of dried mint and thyme. The generosity of the fruit is supported by a delicious tannic grip. Such beautiful development, with nutty nuances and moreish toastiness. 93/100
