Gavalas Xenoloo 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

2010 Xeneloo 13% - A red wine made with ½ day skin contact then 8 to 12 months of barrel ageing. Some Malvasia spiciness great s the nose here along with gamy, foxy undertones and some black spice. Bright and a bit sweet up front before the fairly assertive, drying tannins emerge. The black cherry fruit here is accented with a touch of plum and the wine exhibits nice balance with its assertive acidity supporting some blood orange notes on the modest finish. This has enough balance and inner mouth perfumes to keep it interesting. 87pts

Gavalas:
Our winery is located in Megalochori, and you will get there by walking through a small lit up stone tunnel. The winery is a small museum that tells the three century tradition of the Gavalas family in the winemaking industry. Tours take place from April 15th until the end of October from 10:00 to 20:00. Call us to arrange a visit.

Xenoloo GavalaBlend of Mavrotragano, Boudomato, Athiri, Xenoloo. It is distinguished by the delicate frangrances of ripe and dried fruits with a full-silky taste.
