 Bright purple-red color. Complex, typical bouquet of small berries red fruits, leather and spices (vanilla, pepper, clove), with hints of ripe blackberry. Full mouth, rounded tannins, balanced acidity and well integrated wood tones. Long aftertaste with intense quince aroma.

The 2018 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard was aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of used and second use French barriques. It comes in at 13.9% alcohol. This is a Xinomavro that shows earth and character, but it is rather soft and refined. It's a middle-of-the-road Xinomavro, pleasing on all fronts and very elegant. Ready to drink right now, it adds velvety texture to go with its balanced demeanor. This will hold reasonably well, but the goal here is obviously an early-drinking Xinomavro, not a powerhouse that needs to be cellared for some years. It's delicious and a pleasure to drink. You can dive in now.
