Tasting Notes

The grapes are dried in the sun for about 15 days then crushed and fermented in steel tank. The wine is aged in used barrel for at least 16 years and results in deep red/amber colour with caramel reflections, intense aromas of dried fruits, raisins, honey, butter caramel and minerality. Full and velvety on the palate with balanced sweetness and freshness of acidity. Long aftertaste of candied orange peal.

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.

Aidani

A white grape variety that enjoys particular success on the Greek island of Santorini, Aidani also grows in the Cyclades, Naxos, and Paros. Yielding wines of moderate alcohol content and acidity, the grape offers a richly floral aroma, making it an ideal blending partner for higher-alcohol/higher-acidity grapes, such as Assyrtiko.
