Additional Information on Boutari Naoussa

Winery: Boutari

Varietal: Xinomavro

One of the most important grape varietals to come out of Greece and Macedonia has been the Xinomavro grape, a black skinned varietal famed and adored for its high tannin content and complex, deep and interesting flavors The high amounts of tannin present in the blue-black skins of the Xinomavro varietal make it an ideal grape for barrel aging, and this process helps reveal the true complexity of the fruit, and its wonderful potential for rich and unique flavors Commonly, aged Xinomavro wines hold a varied bouquet reminiscent of Mediterranean foods such as black olives and dried tomatoes, and a deep, dark fruit flavor which is ideal for accompanying many different foods. As such, their popularity is growing around the world, and this grape is in high demand by those seeking something a little different.

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
