Assyrtiko- Vassaltis

by Vassaltis Vineyards

A wonderful, textbook wine from one of Santorini’s newest wineries. All Assyrtiko grapes grown on the volcanic soils of the island are fermented in stainless steel tanks for six months. On the nose, a distinctly peachy, citrus like range is evident, along with  salty minerality. Bright, uplifting acidity takes over in the mid palate, providing  focus and depth. The citrus like finish is long and persistent. Very well crafted, this is an exhilarating and transporting wine that loves all things seafood, especially big fish on the grill, lobster, as well as mild white cheeses.  ABV 13.5% JR16.5  Produced by Vassaltis Vineyards
