Our pick of the week is an amazing bottle of red from Greece.
Wines from Greece are probably most known to people who enjoy spending holidays in this beautiful country. Easy drinking white table wines for a Euro or two. Perfect for that unpretentious holiday feeling, and perfect for consuming when in Greece.
Back home in Norway all the bliss of Greece disappears and if you brought back that two Euro bottle, I'm sure it didn't taste as good as you remembered. Where we drink our wine and with whom will affect the taste and experience of the wine.
This wonderful €20 bottle is made from 100% Xynomavro grape and grown in some of the highest laying vineyards in the country. At 450-650 meters above the sea, the grapes thrive in the Greek sun making this a very characterful bottle of wine.
Only natural yeast from the air is used and its stored in used old oak barrels for 8 months.
Wine lovers are already ordering this wine by the case, so be quick if you wanna taste it.
