SANTORINI ASSYRTIKO

THE CLASSIC EXPRESSION OF ASSYRTIKO

PDO Santorini

VARIETY: Assyrtiko 100%

SOURCE OF GRAPES: Grapes were sourced from old vines of average age 70-100 years old planted in the volcanic, stony soils of Pyrgos and Megalochori at an altitude up to 450 m.

WINEMAKING: Classic white vinification at controlled temperatures followed by short maturation on the fine lees.

TASTING NOTE: Complex and expressive nose of pears, ripe apples with an intense mineral dimension and integrated herbal notes. Full bodied, layered and concentrated on the palate with a creamy texture beautifully balanced by Assyrtiko’s minerality and tension.

AGEING POTENTIAL: Up to 5-7 years from the vintage

SERVED: Decanting is suggested. Drink at 8-10°C.

FOOD AND WINE PAIR: A delicious match with prime grilled fish or fish carpaccio. Alternatively you can pair it with lamb kebabs squeezing 2-3 drops of lemon on the top and yogurt. It will also shine with roasted chicken and pasta with creamy sauce.
