It's Xinomavro, it's Blanc de noir and it's incredible!

Why do we love it?
Foundis family winery was founded in 1992 in the area of Nea Strandza, just 4 kilometers outside of Naoussa Imathia, while their first vineyards from Xinomavro were planted in 1930. Until today, the almost surgical care of the vineyards, which belong to the wine-growing zone PDO Naoussa, combined with the application of new technologies and the microclimate of the region, results exclusively in wines of exceptional quality.
 
Trygias belongs to a special type of wine, the Blanc de Noir. That is, in whites, produced from a red grape variety. This is done as follows, the grapes are pressed very gently and carefully, so as to extract the first juice, which is the most qualitative and pure part of the grape juice, without the great pressures letting the color enter the precious liquid, and thus the wine will be white after all! It is then transferred into new French oak barrels, where it ferments at controlled temperatures to preserve the aromatic elements of the variety. The depth of the aromas is enhanced and acquires structure and complexity when, at the end of fermentation, it remains for 6-7 months in contact with the lees (the traditional trygia), before finally being bottled and revealing the enormous potential of this unique grape!
 
Its aromatic profile and its particular complexity are enjoyable now, but also in the next 5 years!
