Xinomavro Reserve, Alpha Estate, 2017 – Greek Wines
The fine example of Greek wines provides aromas of ripe red berries, strawberries, dark cherries, liquorice, sun dried tomatoes and delicate spice. It is full bodied and structured on the palate, with a rich depth of fruit, concentrated savoury notes and a touch of oak. The velvety tannins lead through to a persistent and aromatic finish.
