In a nutshell:
A rich Assyrtiko from the Greek Islands that has almost Burgundian style characteristics.
Made by the highly respected Gaia Estate on the Greek island of Santorini with the indigenous Assyritiko grape where modern meets traditional winemaking techniques resulting in an excellently rich and complex white. Just under half the wine was fermented in stainless steel and a similar proportion in wooden casks while the remaining 10% was in ceramic vats. The fermentation was allowed to proceed at its own pace with local wild yeasts imparting the wine's final character. The result is a wine citrus and aromatic nose, lemon, orange, melon, peach and pineapple flavours, spicy notes and a creamy texture with clean and crisp acidity.
When to drink:
A quite unique white from the Greek islands. It goes very well with seafood, meatier fish, lamb, or poultry.
