Domaine Karydas Xinomavro Naoussa 2007
Domaine Karydas is a small family estate in Naoussa run by Konstantinos Karydaas and his son Petros. The winery is run in a very Burgundian fashion: There are no tricks or tinkering, just old-fashioned winemaking and only the most essential equipment. The vineyard is a small 2.1 hectare vineyard planted in 1979. The higher elevation allows for a longer fuller ripening of the Xinomavro grapes, recent advances in the vineyard have allowed for a richness of flavor. The grapes are fermented in cement tanks and then aged almost 2 years in French oak barriques.
