Winemaker Notes

Bright, clear yellow color. Dry with distinct aromas of citrus and flowers, combined with hints of smoke and minerals from the volcanic soil. Full-bodied, well-balanced with intense flavors and a long finish.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
This vintage marked the 70th anniversary of this cooperative winery. By picking early and relying on fruit from high-altitude vineyards, winemaker Nikos Varvarigos worked the warmth of the vintage into a powerful, impressive Santorini. It’s nearly tropically ripe, juicy peach and apricot flavors hinting at mango, even as the island’s stony character comes through. It ends firm and clean, leaving behind the scent of sea air.

The remains of an ancient volcano that erupted around 1600 BC, Santorini is one of the southern Cyclades islands and is most recognized for its white wines made from the fruity and mineral-rich, Assyrtiko.

Image for Assyrtiko content section

A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity and with a striking mineral character, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini, but is grown increasingly wide throughout the country today. The reasons for its popularity are plentiful: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Flavors often found in Assyrtiko and its blends include lemon zest, passion fruit, pineapple, flint and fennel. It is versatile when matched with food; try it with oysters, shrimp, salmon as well as grilled chicken, tomatoes and asparagus.
