Diaporos Winemaker Notes

Deep red colour, almost blue, very different from the traditional Xinomavros. In the nose, the bouquet consists of ripe black fruit, plums, cigar box, black chocolate, golden tobacco, pepper. In the mouth one gets the well constructed, sculpted tannins rooted in a dense layer of ripe fruit. A full bodied wine, rich in ripe tannins with good acidity balanced by the quite high alcohol level. A new version of the Xinomavro grape, expressing the vineyard where it is coming from.
