If a New World Xinomavro ever existed this would be it. Kir Yianni has managed to hold on to what intrigues us about Xinomavro and at the same time craft a wine that is nothing like what we have seen before. Diaporos has a deep red colour, almost blue, very different from the traditional Xinomavro. In the nose, the bouquet consists of ripe black fruit, plums, cigar box, black chocolate, golden tobacco, pepper. In the mouth one gets the well constructed, sculpted tannins rooted in a dense layer of ripe fruit. This is a full bodied wine, rich in ripe tannins with good acidity balanced by the quite high alcohol level. A new version of the Xinomavro grape, expressing the vineyard where it is coming from. Under proper storage conditions this wine can be aged and enjoyed for up to 10-12 years and more.
