A superb rosé wine imbued with great elegance. It is produced by Stellios Boutaris, a member of the fifth generation of vine growers of the Boutaris family. Founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris, one of the leaders of the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the family wine company created by his grandfather in 1879, Kir-Yianni offers us here a dry rosé as dynamic as refreshing. Made from the Xinomavro grape, this Greek rosé wine has a bouquet of aromas reminiscent of small wild strawberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, sweet spices and white flowers, interwoven with subtle grassy notes. Lightweight, without being devoid of fat or matter, this bright rosé proves to be very versatile while being as easy to love as to drink. The whole is crunchy and balanced!
