2017 P.G.I. Slopes of Paiko Xinomavro, Macedonia / Μακεδονία, Greece

Bloody-fleshy, iodiney and somewhat metallic nose of more black than red berries with dried herb notes reminiscent of oregano and a hint of pepper. Clear, polished, tart and fine-juicy fruit, very fine, youthful tannin and certain acid bite, metallic, iodine-meaty and dried-herbal aromas, oregano again, persistent on the palate, has life and freshness, amazing coolness for the relatively high alcohol, mineral notes, very good, firm, tart-juicy and again reminiscent of oregano and iodine finish
