VARIETY: Assyrtiko 100%
SOURCE OF GRAPES: Grapes were sourced from old vines that may reach 100 years of age planted in the volcanic, stony soils of Akrotiri at an altitude up to 330 m.
WINEMAKING: Classic white vinification at controlled temperatures followed by maturation in new French oak for 6 months.
TASTING NOTE: Complex nose combining roasted almonds and vanilla with citrus fruit and minerals. Full bodied and creamy with well integrated oak, this is a modern and layered wine that benefits from oak maturation yet retains Assyrtiko’s nerve and taut structure.
AGEING POTENTIAL: Up to 5-7 years from the vintage
SERVED: Decanting is suggested. Drink at 10-12°C.
FOOD AND WINE PAIR: A delicious match with chargrilled fish, pork in lemon sauce or rabbit casserole with olive oil, lemon and herbs. It will also taste great next to stuffed pasta such as ravioli or pasta with black truffles and butter.
