Winemaker Notes

Santorini is the southernmost island in the Aegean Sea and one of the islands in the Cyclades group. Formerly known as Thira as well as Kallisti (‘The Fairest'), Santorini is a volcanic island with porous terrain and unique appearance that were created by a series of volcanic eruptions many hundreds of thousands of years ago. This unique topography has promoted Santorini into a viticultural (winemaking) region of its own. The loam soil offers many benefits to viticulture in Santorini, among these the crisp, clean, mineral qualities of the island varieties.

Boutari Santorini is the white wine that distinguished the Santorini vineyard worldwide. Today it constitutes a must for every oenophile. The island of Santorini, located in Greece's Aegean Sea, is essentially a defunct volcanic caldera. The island's loam soil is characteristically dry -- this, in combination with Santorini's microclimate, provides Boutari Santorini with its mineral and citrusy characteristics. Served at 50°F, it pairs excellently with seafood, poultry and white meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

WS 88
Wine Spectator

Rich and well-crafted, with golden delicious flavors and plenty of nice creamy touches. Plenty of smoke and spice on the fresh, juicy finish.

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 SANTORINI is 100% Assyrtiko, aged five months in stainless steel. Santorini’s old vineyards contain pre-phylloxera vines. This combines a certain initial solidity with a nice, bright finish, a bit of herbaceousness and some bursts of acidity around the edges. I particularly liked the finish, which lingered respectably for a wine in its price category. It holds nicely with air, remaining rather persistent, sunny and charming. Drink now-2012.

Boutari
The Boutari family has been crafting wines from Greek varietals since 1879, when Yiannis Boutari first started producing red wines in the small northern village of Naoussa. Since that first vintage the family has become a pioneer of Greek wines. From exporting the first bottled red wine from Greece to reviving lost varietals, Boutari now crafts wines from six different regions using varietals that are grown nowhere else in the world. In a constant quest for improvement Boutari maintains "demonstration" vineyards around Greece where local farmers are invited to learn new methods and techniques for improving their grapes. The results have been astounding: Boutari has been named an International Winery of the Year by Wine and Spirits 14 times – only 5 wineries in the world have received the award more times. Achievements such as developing the modern style of Santorini to reviving lost varietals have garnered lavish praise from the wine press and spawned a generation of high-quality Greek wines made by vintners who cut their teeth under the tutelage of the Boutari family.

Rhône White Blends

View all wine

Full-bodied and flavorful, Rhône white blends are made in France’s Rhone Valley and beyond, proving most successful in Spain, Australia, South America, and California’s Central Coast. They are made from a combination of two or more of the white varieties permitted in the Rhône, potentially including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier.

In the Glass

Each variety brings something different to the table. Round, textural Grenache Blanc contributes green apple and white stone fruit flavors; weighty Marsanne adds structure and delicate honeysuckle aromas; russet-colored Roussanne lends intriguing herbal, tea-like notes, and Viognier provides an oily texture and an elegant floral perfume. The flavor of the final wine will depend on the chosen components of the blend and their respective proportions.

Perfect Pairings

Since Rhône white blends tend to be fairly full-bodied, they can be quite versatile food pairing wines and can work with light to medium rich meals that might normally be matched with reds. Meatier fish dishes with bold seasoning like grilled swordfish with caper butter or baked, herb-crusted mahi mahi are natural allies for these flavorful wines. Other ideal dishes include roast pork in mustard sauce, poached lobster with beurre blanc, or a rich and savory vegetable quiche. `

Sommelier Secret

In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are most common, in the appellations of St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, and St-Péray (in Condrieu and Château-Grillet, whites are made from Viognier only). The Southern Rhône, on the other hand, has much more variety, with many more permitted grapes including Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul Blanc, and Ugni Blanc.
