The best known Assyrtikos are found on the volcanic island of Santorini – but this wine from Papagiannakos definitely matches their quality. Its coastal location, on the Attican peninsula, infuses the wine with the same salinity and racing acidity due to its proximity to the sea.
The vines are grown on unirrigated limestone soil at around 100m altitude, in north-east Attiki. The wine undergoes no oak ageing but is matured in bottle for up to a year before release.
This wine has fresh floral aromas of citrus, white blossom, wild orange and lime. Further citrus characters on the textured, mineral palate with a refreshing saline acidity. A zesty, crisp and characterful white with potential to age.
