Apostolos Thymiopoulos has a very strong claim to be the world's best producer of Xinomavro. He makes ten different expressions of this great Greek grape, and it’s not unlikely that the number will continue to grow. Aftorizo is one of the single plot wines that mark the pinnacle of his acheivements. Made in tiny quantities from a small parcel of old (planted in 1966), ungrafted Xinomavro vines in one of the best sites in Naoussa. It is a deeply complex, perfectly balanced red with an entrancing floral perfume. It has great depth of fruit and beautiful, silky tannins. Delicious on release, but this is a serious, ageworthy wine.

Single plot of ungrafted vines planted in the 1960s at 450m altitude. Fermented with indigenous yeasts. Aged 12 months in 500l, used French oak.
