Your ticket to spring - Thymiopoulos Boarding Pass 2014

Your ticket to spring!

If you live on the on the East Coast of the United States like we do here at Athenee, you are dreaming of warm spring weather, birds chirping, flowers blooming and most importantly, No Snow!!!  In order to get us in the mood for spring, which is less than 3 weeks away officially), we have begun receiving the newest vintages of our white & rose wines.

Thymiopoulos Boarding Pass is made from 85% Malagouzia & 15% Kountoura Blanc, a local grape variety found in central Greece.  Boarding Pass is is the perfect wine for warm spring days - bright fruit, balanced acidity and a pleasant finish.  It pairs well with spring dishes filled with tender vegetables like spring peas, baby lettuce, ramps and lamb.

Boarding Pass is fermented 100& in stainless steel and is then left "sur lie", i.e. the wine is left in contact with the lees of the fermented wine, to develop a rich texture & complexity.

Be on the lookout for the 2014 vintage - we just received it and it's making its way through our distribution channels.
