Assyrtiko Wild Ferment Santorini, Gaia - 2021

Item # 23422 750mL

A dry, white wine made of the local Assyrtiko grape. The Gai'a winery makes these wines from Santorini and is perhaps the only winery we know of using native yeasts for fermentation. The result is a fabulously floral wine that's mineraled and rich. Drink just lightly chilled.

Staff Pick Notes

The Gai'a Assyriko wild ferment uses native yeasts, subsequently taking this wine to the next level. Rich and full-bodied, like a Burgundian Chardonnay, while still maintaining the varietal's characteristc minerality and salinity. It's a natural match for fish, but this powerful white wine can be paired with cream sauces, mussels, and white meats. If you're unfamiliar with Greek wines, this one will set the bar high.

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.
