Organic rose wine from Greece: Southern Wine Roads

Greek organic rose wine: Xinomavro 2013

Xinomavro Rose 2013 is an organic wine produced and bottled at the winery of Anestis Babatzimopoulous (wow, what a name!), in a district of Ossa, Lagadas.

First impression is the aroma – a candy-like, floral and sweet red fruit (strawberry), very intensely perfumed. The flavour does not disappoint – you should expect a good balance of refreshing acidity, but not over the top; there are also delicious sweet-ish fruit flavours and some touches of lemon-lime combination.
It is so easy to be off balance, but it is not the case here.

Good thing about matching this wine with food is that its restrained fruity side will not go against some savoury starters containing parma ham or jamon serrano. Excited to try?
