Dalamara Naoussa Back with New Vintage

In the heart of the Naoussa appellation, Domaine Dalamara make some of Greece's best red wines. Their flagship is 'Paliokalias', a single vineyard, old vine Xinomavro. It is wonderful (and after a skipped vintage will be available again later this year - watch this space) but for immediate drinkability at half the price you cannot beat their plain 'Naoussa' bottling.

This is a superb wine in its own right, made with fruit from their other vineyards and with half the extraction time of Paliokalias. As a result it is less dense and more immediately approachable, with an enchanting, floral aroma and perfect balance. It is one of my all time favourite wines in fact, the ideal autumn evening drink and a worthy challenger to Barolo. The new 2019 vintage is about to arrive. Don't miss it.
