Thymiopoulos Atma Red: A Refreshingly Unique Greek Blend

Uncorking Greece's sunshine:  Looking for a vibrant red wine that breaks the mould? Look no further than the Thymiopoulos Atma Red. This exciting blend, crafted by the acclaimed winemaker Apostolos Thymiopoulos, brings together two of Greece's most distinguished grapes: Xinomavro and Mandilaria.

A Fusion of Terroir:  The Xinomavro hails from the esteemed Naoussa region in northern Greece, renowned for its distinctive reds. Meanwhile, the Mandilaria grapes flourish on the volcanic soils of Santorini, the island paradise famous for its white wines. This unique combination creates a truly captivating drinking experience.

Tasting Profile: A Burst of Freshness

  • Colour: The Thymiopoulos Atma Red pours a beautiful ruby red with lively garnet hues.
  • Aroma: On the nose, a delightful bouquet of red berries unfolds, reminiscent of cherries, raspberries, and cranberries. Hints of spice and subtle floral notes add further complexity.
  • Palate: The first sip is a revelation. The wine boasts a refreshingly light and juicy character, brimming with vibrant red fruit flavours that mirror the aromas. Crisp acidity dances across the tongue, perfectly balanced by a touch of natural sweetness. Despite the presence of Xinomavro, known for its firm tannins, the Atma Red avoids excessive astringency, thanks to the clever choice of unoaked ageing. This results in a smooth, easy-drinking experience with a lingering, pleasant finish.

Food Pairings: A Culinary Adventure

The Thymiopoulos Atma Red's versatility makes it a fantastic partner for a variety of dishes. Here are some suggestions to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Meze Platter: Kick off your culinary journey with a selection of Greek appetisers. The wine's acidity cuts through creamy dips like tzatziki and pairs beautifully with cured meats and grilled vegetables.
  • Pizza Night: For a more casual setting, the Atma Red complements pizzas topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and various Mediterranean ingredients like olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and peppers.
  • Pasta Perfection: Tomato-based pasta dishes with flavoursome ingredients such as sausage, meatballs, or roasted vegetables find a perfect match in this wine.
  • Grilled Delights: Whether you're firing up lamb chops, grilled chicken, or halloumi, the Atma Red's fresh fruitiness and balanced acidity will enhance the smoky and savoury notes of the grilled fare.
  • Vegetarian Options: Don't be fooled by the term "red wine." The Atma Red's lighter style makes it a delightful companion to vegetarian dishes. Think portobello mushroom burgers, lentil stews, or roasted vegetables with balsamic glaze.
