The great white grape of Santorini, transplanted to Amyndeon in northern Greece. Aromas of citrus, white fruits and flowers. On the palate, the wine has a linear profile with mineral, stoney notes and fresh acidity, supported by a rounded mouthfeel lasting to a long finish.

    This is great stuff - bone dry, grippy, zippy, full of lemon zest and green peach flavours. A must for seafood or just sitting in the garden in the sun.


Winemaking

The grapes are chilled overnight and cold soaked in order to maximize the extraction of aroma precursors into the must. Following racking, the must is inoculated with selected yeasts. At the end of the fermentation, the wine matures for a period of 4-5 months on its lees, gaining more volume and complexity.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

Assyrtiko is a wine ideal for food pairings: roasted or poached fish fillet, fried cod, oven-roasted stuffed squid, pasta in white sauce, white cheeses.
