Winemakers Notes:,/strong> Bright purple-red color. Complex, typical bouquet of small berries, red fruits, leather and spices (vanilla, pepper, clove), with hints of ripe blackberry. Full mouth, rounded tannins, balanced acidity and well integrated wood tones. Long aftertaste with intense quince aroma. Perfect match with juicy red barbecued meats, spicy sausages, red baked peppers in olive oil, stew rabbit, light spicy full body cheeses.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard was aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of used and new French barriques. It comes in at 13.8% alcohol. Always a great value in the lineup, and very consistent, this provides earthy complexity, power and a bright finish. The mid-palate tends to be not as impressive, but this hardly feels thin. It is nicely textured as well, silky at times and velvety most always. The best part, though, is its juicy energy. It is a little mouthwatering. This is not, of course, a sweet and fruity wine—it's more classic Xinomavro, with its fair share of tannins and acidity. At the same time, it is very balanced, vaguely approachable even now. It was pretty fine the next day. It should come along well, though, if you can give it a year or so to settle down. It is balanced and the tannins are not overly hard. It's another fine effort in this brand, which is always a good source for value. It should age well."


Wine & Spirits - "Culled from the younger vines on Angelo Iatridis’s estate, this is a bright, juicy modern xinomavro with lots of ripe, creamy strawberry flavor. Floral notes of rose and pink peppercorn give it lift and elegance."


Decanter - "This elegant wine's impressive allspice and raisiny characters, fine-grained, grippy tannins and mouthwatering acidity make for a lovely bottle that will age well."
