Kir-Yianni Akakies Sparkling Rosé 2021 Review
In northwestern Greece in Macedonia, there is a wine region called Amyndeon; high in the mountains where Kir-Yianni sources the native Xinomavro grape for this sparkling wine. The site is known to produce grapes best for rosé. Well, this winemaker took it a step further and made it bubbly. Fire engine red with notes of ripe strawberries and a whisper of anise, it has great depth of fruit with very active yet soft perlage (bubbles). The depth of this wine screams for food, stat. Fry up some fish and pop a few of these.
