"Xinomavro is a brilliant red grape variety from Greece, which is well worth getting to know. This bottle offers supple cherry flavours, with savoury character too." Applies to 2011 vintage.
Jamie Goode, Sunday Express , 16th March 2014
"This humble but arresting Greek is made from the tart xinomavro grape grown in northern Greece. Your first taste of quirky biodynamic xinomavro, like this gamey, thyme and rose-scented, oak-aged 2011, will come as a shock, but persevere as there are lots of festive spiced meats that cry out for this pale, 14 per cent alcohol red."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times , 16th March 2014
"Interest in Greek wine seems to be rising in inverse proportion to the fortunes of its economy. Recently I wrote about the selection on offer at revitalised Oddbins…Marks & Spencer is also doing its bit, and its red collaboration with Apostolos Thymiopoulos from Naoussa in Greek Macedonia is classic xinomavro: rippling with juicy dark cherry in a sweet-sour, Italianate mode."
David Williams, The Observer , 16th March 2014
