Oenops - Aplá dry rosé wine 2019
Oenops - Aplá dry rosé wine 2019 (88 TSW)
Greece Blend of 50% Xinomavro – 30% Limniona – 20% Mavroudi.
Direct pressing after sorting of the grapes (some lots whole cluster)
Fermentation in inox and concrete tanks, independently for each parcel.
Four months aging on the fine lees before bottling.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a bright copper - orange color.
On the medium nose aromas of orangezest, strawberries and watermelon with hints of nectarine, jasmine and tomatoleafs.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium acidity and nice freshness. Flavours of lemon, nectarine, flowers, pear and apricot. Medium(+) length finish with peach and watermelon notes.
Food matching: Serve as a great match for pasta, pizza, fish, salads, fruits, cheese. A perfect accompaniment to Mediterranean and Greek dishes, yet it may be served as aperitif on its own.
Nikos Karatzas founded OENOPS WINES PC in 2015 and it is the most newly established winery in the region of Drama. Its main purpose is to produce high quality wines in limited quantities. The grapes come from personally selected vineyards from Drama and Macedonia in general, that are cultivated from ambitious winegrowers.
