Anything but Standard Sparklers

“Greece is in the midst of this really odd but lovable winemaking transformation… That means affordable gems like this sparkling rosé, made from Xinomavro grapes grown in the northwestern part of the country.”

“…It’s a vibrant rosé. Across the palate, there’s lots of fruit, and it ends with some tannins that balance the wine and cleanse the palate. It’s like a sparkling red…”

Greek Wine? Oh Yes.

A fabulous sparkling rosé produced from 100% Xinomavro grapes grown in vineyards inside the Agios Panteleimon zone in the Amyndeon region, the only Greek-controlled designation of origin for rosés.

Xinomavro – Considered one of Greece’s greatest red varietals and responsible for its most serious reds… or if you want to see this grape demonstrate its lighter side try Kir-Yianni Akakies Sparkling Rosé is 100% Xinomavro.

The next Greek wine revolution, Kir-Yianni

The newest addition to the Kir-Yianni portfolio and made entirely from the Xinomavro grape. Bright salmon-pink with bright fresh strawberry/wild berry notes on the nose, it sports a creamy mouthfeel with just a bare hint of sweetness. The finish is crisp and refreshing.
