Drink it now or cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant but it is recommended to open it half an hour before service.

The family of the oenologist Apostolos Thymiopoulo has been active in the wine sector for generations. But, as is common in the Macedonian region, the grapes were not vinified by the winemakers but sold. When Apostolos Thymiopoulo took over the business in 2033, he changed the farm into a domain, producing his own wines. The 23 hectares of the property are cultivated only with one red grape variety: Xinomavro. Furthermore, since the arrival of Apostolos, the grapes have been organically grown and intervention in the cellar is at a minimum.

Aftorizo is a single vineyard wine produced from old plants located in the Fytia mountains, in the southern part of Naoussa. Here, the soil is a combination of slate and granite and provides a distinctive mineral backbone to the wine.

The nose shows a wide floral bouquet of rose and violet, along with fruity and mineral notes. On the palate, the quality of the tannins and the great freshness create an elegant wine with infinite aromas and aftertaste. You can enjoy it now, but it will taste even better as it ages. It goes well with braised beef, but also with a tomato or mushroom salad, or stuffed Portobello mushrooms.
