Macedonia

Macedonia is one of Greece’s largest provinces extending from the latitude of Mount Olympus to the country’s northern borders with the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria. It has very varied terrain and is home to a correspondingly diverse set of wine growing sub-regions. Western Macedonia is mountainous. In its territory is Naoussa, one of Greece’s most famous appellations in the foothills of Mount Vermio which produces wines from the classic red grape, Xinomavro; in the uplands to the north west is Amyndeon, another Xinomavro appellation but which also grows white wines. Our producers from Western Macedonia are Alpha, Kir-Yianni, Karydas and Voyatzis. The wine regions of Central Macedonia (with the exception of Goumenissa on the edge of the Vardar valley in the north which makes wines from Xinomavro and Negoska) are relatively close to the sea. The region encompasses the vineyards on Chalcidice including Mount Athos. The Gerovassiliou estate is situated in Central Macedonia, not far from Greece’s second city, Salonica. Eastern Macedonia includes the vineyards below Mount Pangaion and those in the Drama plain. Our producers from Eastern Macedonia are the Nico Lazaridi and Pavlidis estates.

Wine TypeAlpha Estate Red 2003
Iatridis's achievement in this classic example of contemporary vinification is to let each of the three varietals shine in its own way while creating something that is more than the sum of its parts. A vigorous and youthful Syrah predominates, yet the mysterious notes of Xinomavro sound clearly. Intense, dense colour, strong berry notes on the nose and great richness in the mouth. The clarity of the structure is remarkable and suggests superb ageing potential. The wine can be enjoyed now but will undoubtedly become even grander with age.

Wine TypeAlpha Xinomavro 2003
This wine is a great example of
Xinomavro from Amyndeon vinified in a
modern way. The colour is a beautiful
bright red colour with purple hints, the
nose exhibits delicious aromas of red
berries with hints of liquorice and
chocolate. Aromas of strawberry carry
through the finish with a nice structure
and well-integrated tannins. This wine
was named Best Old World Red by Stephen
Spurrier in the April 2005 issue of
Decanter.

Wine TypeAlpha Xinomavro 2004
Bright, deep ruby colour with purple hints. Rich and intricate bouquet, earthy, dominated by leather and cherry brandy aromas with a peppery and plummy background. Generous, full-bodied, chewy, robust wine with a velvety taste and vanilla, wood and toffee hints. Lightly tannic finish with a long persistence of aromas. It will benefit from extended maturation.

Wine TypeKir-Yianni Akakies 2004
Perhaps the most unusual rosé in the world. Xinomavro, literally ‘sharp black’, more typically makes elegant, tannic reds with strawberry and spice finish. The classic rosé vinification, light pressing and fermentation without skins, has produced a fresh, clean wine with excellent fruit and acid balance, a tart berry nose and intense clarity of colour. Highly praised.
