I have been drinking Paranga! This wine from Kir-Yianni in Naoussa, Greece is primed for a wine drinking session. I’m a huge fan of Kir-Yianni wines and i managed to pick this up in the super market for 950RSD (about 8EUR); an absolute steal. The 2017 vintage is a tasty blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Xinomavro and 25% Syrah grapes. A plate smashing range of flavours and aromas, with herbal and fruity flavours of cherry, strawberry, and forest fruits, backed up with farmyard and a hints of pepper from the Syrah. The Xinomavro softens the tannins and Merlot adds body to the wine, and the Syrah with a aromatic nose and finish. Add to this, that the wine is only 13.5%, makes this a well-balanced and easy to drink red. So go ahead, grab a glass (or a bottle or two) and enjoy.
