(2021) At five years of age the colour of this Xinomavro from Naoussa is broadly brick and tawny on the rim, and the wine does smell rather mature. It spent 12 months in French oak barrels (40% new) and a further 30 months in bottle, and there are tapenade and tinned Italian plum tomato notes on the nose that for me are not terribly attractive. The palate is dry - I would say drying - with vestiges of sweet, perhaps overripe fruit. Though I am not 100% convinced this particular sample was in A1 condition, I couldn't give this a whole-hearted recommendation.
