A fun little blend of indigenous Greek grapes, Xinomavro, Limniona, Mavroudi, this flirty rose walks that line between fresh fruit - strawberry, cherry, peach - and savory notes of brine, tomato leaf, thyme and herbal stems. I find this wine nicely restrained with a fun rush of red cherries on the finish. Think lamb, sausages,  braised vegetables, seafood, cheeses (haloumi), long warm nights and relaxation.

Nikos Karatzas is the winemaker here. He began his winemaking experience at Ktima Pavlidis, a rising star winery in Drama, one of Greece’s relatively youthful wine-producing region. Drama is located in northeastern Greece at the base of the mountains separating Macedonia from Bulgaria with a long winemaking history.,The region did not emerge onto the modern winemaking scene until the 1980s.

Nikos launched Oenops Wines in 2015. He partners with a variety of growers throughout the region to source high quality grapes, producing limited quantities of pure wines with character expressive of their vineyard terroir. He grows Xinomavro, Limniona, Mavroudi, Orange and Vidiano grapes, striving to retain purity and character expession. Hence, No new oak is used during during maturation, using instead a combination of stainless steel, amphora and used oak to ferment his wines. Aging occurs in amphora.

 

Nikos crafts this lov40% Xinomavro, 40% Limniona and 20% Mavroudi
