This classic Naousa from Markovitis Winery, also known in the past as Chateau Pegasus, is really exceptional and one of the best you can find today. It comes from the very special vintage of 2017, which was one more great year for the production of Xinomavro in the area. Markos Markovitis, grandson of the founder, is a viticultrurist and oenologist with studies in Germany and a very forward thinking view of the future of Greek wine making. He also believes that all necessary interventions should only made in the vineyard in order to bring forth the main characteristics of the terroir. His production comes from a single vineyard which lies just in front of the winery and is cultivated biologically for years and years exclusively with Xinomavro. The use of oak barrels for 12 months during maturation leads to a more sophisticated and balanced final product, without covering the precious tannins on one side but without allowing the dynamic aspects of Xinomavro to stand out more than necessary. As is usually the case with this very promising variety, it offers a great aging potential which can vary from 5 to 10 years, so it will be up to you to decide if you will keep it in your cellar or enjoy it here and now.
