Tasting Notes

Coming from the Greek island of Santorini and made entirely from the indigenous Assyrtiko grape, this smoky white wine is simply a delight. Bright notes of honeysuckle and citrus play against a focused minerality.


Astor's Glossary of Terms

Assyrtiko

Pronounced "a SEER tee ko". This white varietal is native to Santorini and the other Aegean Islands. Used to make crisp dry wines similar in style to dry Riesling, it is often blended with other varietals - both indigenous and international - such as Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is also used to make the popular Greek dessert wine, Vinsanto.
