Description

The winery of Apostolos Thymiopoulos is situated in North West Greece in the Naoussa appellation, in the little village of Trilofos where the annual mean temperature is the same as in Bordeaux. Thymiopoulos is still in his mid-thirties, but is widely acclaimed as one of Greece’s finest winemakers. On his small farm/winery he practices bio-dynamic viticulture, even using a flock of guinea fowl to control the locusts. He prunes very sparingly, if at all, letting the vines determine their own balance.

 

Earth & Sky is a distinctive full-bodied red wine of intense cherry colour with solid tears. Contained aroma of red berries, twigs, mushrooms, truffle and earthy hints. Compact attack with very fine acidity and firm tannins. Distinctive texture, including lots of finesse and elegance for the future. Long, fine fruity finish with humus and mushrooms. Dream combination with truffle dishes and wild mushrooms, braised root vegetables and white mould cheeses. Till 5 years best decant several hours in advance.
