Thymiopoulos Atma White: A Captivating Blend from Naoussa

Unveiling a Unique Greek White Wine Experience

Nestled within the esteemed Naoussa appellation of Greece, renowned winemaker Apostolos Thymiopoulos crafts a captivating departure from tradition with the Thymiopoulos Atma White. This dry white wine ventures beyond the typical white grape varietals, showcasing a fascinating and delicious blend that is sure to tantalise your taste buds.

A Bold Step Beyond: Xinomavro and Malagousia

Naoussa is primarily recognized for its robust red wines, particularly those made from the Xinomavro grape. However, Thymiopoulos breaks away from convention by using a combination of Xinomavro and Malagousia grapes in the Atma White. The Xinomavro, a black grape variety, is vinified as a blanc de noir, utilising only the clear juice to create a surprising and delightful white wine. This unique technique, alongside the inclusion of the aromatic Malagousia grape, results in a truly one-of-a-kind white wine experience.

Aromatic Allure: Unveiling the Sensory Profile

As you uncork the Thymiopoulos Atma White, prepare to be greeted by a captivating bouquet of aromas. The influence of the Malagousia grape shines through with notes of exotic florals, offering a delightful first impression. Hints of citrus and stone fruits further complement the floral character, creating a complex and inviting aroma that piques your curiosity.

A Dance on the Palate: Flavour Exploration

The first sip of Thymiopoulos Atma White reveals a delightful interplay of flavours. The initial impression is one of crisp freshness, thanks to the vibrant acidity that is a hallmark of Greek white wines. This acidity is beautifully balanced by the subtle richness imparted by the Xinomavro grape, adding a touch of weight and texture to the mid-palate. As the wine lingers on the tongue, flavours of green apple and citrus come to the forefront, leaving a refreshingly clean and lingering finish.

Food Pairings to Elevate the Experience

The Thymiopoulos Atma White's unique flavour profile makes it a versatile food pairing companion. Here are some suggestions to elevate your dining experience:

  • Seafood: The wine's crisp acidity and subtle salinity pair wonderfully with fresh seafood dishes. Consider grilled prawns, pan-seared scallops, or even a delicate sea bass.
  • Light Salads: Salads bursting with fresh ingredients like goat cheese, walnuts, and seasonal fruits find a perfect match in the Atma White. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the cheese, while the fruity notes complement the salad's flavours.
  • Meze Platters: Explore the vibrant world of Greek cuisine by pairing the Atma White with a selection of meze dishes. Opt for options like dolmades (stuffed vine leaves), creamy fava bean dip, or grilled halloumi cheese.
