Santorini – Assyrtiko PDO, White
It is produced from the excellent white variety Assyrtiko, carefully selected from the traditional vineyard of Santorini. The vineyard of the island is considered the oldest in Greece, it has never been infected with phylloxera and its stems are self-rooted. The rainfall on the island is very little and the winds are very strong. That is why the vines are pruned in the shape of a bun (characteristic of Santorini) in order to protect the grapes from the winds.
A special white dry wine with a bright white-yellow color. On the nose there are very delicate fruit aromas with predominantly the aromas of pear, lemon and unripe pineapple. In the mouth the wine is soft, greasy, fruity with a full body and refined taste. Its acidity, without dominating, contributes to balance and offers it a long aftertaste.
