Winemaker's Notes:

#83 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

When opening a bottle of Assyrtiko-Athiri, the eye is captivated by the bright straw blonde color and light green shades. The nose of wine is dominated by ripe citrus fruit, with lemon coming to the fore, while its excellent structure and acidity compliment its nose granting vibrancy and a lingering aftertaste. Assyrtiko-Athiri is excellent with traditional Greek recipes, fish dishes and white meats with light sauces.

My Notes:

About Domaine Sigalas:

On the plain of Oia, in Santorini, and more specifically in Baxedes area, the winery of Domaine Sigalas can be found. Here, the most vibrant variety of the Mediterranean zone, the Santorini Assyrtiko as well as the Aidani, Athiri, Mandilaria and the Mavrotragano are put to the best use possible, and with the proper respect to their organoleptic characteristics, the quality wines are produced which receive acclaim in international competitions, both in Greece and abroad.
