Kir-Yianni was founded in 1997 by Yiannis Boutaris, one of the leading figures in the Greek wine industry, when he left the Boutari Wine Group, the premium family wine company that his grandfather established in 1879. Today, Stellios Boutaris, a member of the fifth generation of winemakers, leads Kir-Yianni into the next phase of its history, by dynamically exploring the cornerstones of the Kir-Yianni philosophy: the desire for innovation, respect for tradition and using his knowledge of the wine, from the grape to the end consumer.

Diaporos Single Vineyard Xinomavro, Ktima Kir-Yianni 2015 - fiche technique
Deep red color with purple hues. The nose shows a complex aromatic character composed of successive layers of vanilla and chocolate notes from oak maturation, plus strawberry aromas typical of a young Xinomavro enhanced with floral hints of violet. The intense acidity adds zing to the rich, concentrated body, while the flavour intensity and the robust structure of the wine are a promise of a long ageing potential.
