Why do we love it?

Ok, we know that Siatista is known mainly for its desert wine from sun-dried grapes. What would you say, though, if we shared the secret that somebody is making a fantastic Xinomavro there? There is enough word going around about Diamantis Winery. It is this boutique winery in Siatista, which has long been discussed in all the wine circles! A few months ago, we were talking about its amazing, single-varietal Moschomavro, but now it's time to uncover a really great wine from the Diamantis Winery.

Why do we love it?

Because for the Xinomavro 2015 Diamantis Winery, the best clones of Xinomavro have been selected and planted in vineyards at an altitude of 850 m - 920 m, where the cultivation is naturally organic. After careful selection of the fruit, the precious juice enters French oak barrels and "rests" for up to 24 months.

The result is extremely impressive, with silky tannins and juicy fruit making it brilliant. The winemaking style is more modern, more fruit oriented and less green in general. If you are a fan of the variety, this wine should definitely be part of your collection!

When to drink it?

It depends on your self-restraint. Now it is lively and playful. In 4-5 years, it can be one of the diamonds in your collection.
