White wine variety Assyrtiko of Santorini, 750ml *2019 unique variety with satisfactory ripeness of grapes with a relatively high acidity.
Country of origin GREECE
Produced from the traditional white variety of wine grapes of Santorini, Assyrtiko.
It is perhaps the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages under adverse soil-climatic conditions to combine satisfactory ripeness of grapes with a relatively high acidity, a feature particularly important for the taste balance of white dry wines.
The Assyrtiko we choose for THALASSITH comes exclusively from the autonomous vineyards of Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos. The average age of these vineyards is estimated at about 80 years.
The extremely low acreage yield, which rarely exceeds 350 kg of grapes per acre, in combination with the soil and the variety, give a wine exuberant, nervous, with a strong personality.
THALASSITHS stands out better during a meal and especially with seafood, fish, shellfish and lemon lamb. Generally, it prefers flavors of moderate aromatic intensity, where salty, sour or greasy predominate.
A peculiarity of most Assyrtikos from Santorini is that while they are white wines, they have a red behavior! Try to age THALASSITI for 2-3 years, but strictly at a temperature that will never exceed 12o-14oC. THALASSITIS will change. Its minerality will subside, while aromas of fruit and honey will clothe its body.
