Producer: Kostis Dalamaras
From an internationally acclaimed and talented young producer, it offers textbook typical Xinomavro aromas and palate with forest fruits, black olive, tomato stalk, mint and thyme bushes, cedar wood and earth notes. The lively acidity refreshes the palate and gives vitality to the fruit. The spicy aftertaste leaves plum and chocolate in the mouth.
Since 1840 the Dalamara family have been making wine and distilling spirits in Naoussa. Sixth-generation Kostis Dalamaras took over the vineyard and winery fully in 2009 and produced his first single-vineyard organic wine, Paliokalias 2009, now a historic wine. The 6-hectare large vineyard is farmed organically, planted mostly with Xinomavro at about 240-300m elevation and facing South, on the foothills of Mount Vermio. The oldest vines have an age of 85 years.
