Assyrtiko Santorini "Cuvée 15", Hatzidakis - 2021

Item # 20538 750mL

The most interesting thing about the Assyrtiko that grows on Santorini, aside from the wines it produces, is that the vines are trained in spiral formations. This makes them resemble baskets, and protects the grapes against the island's incredible heat. This example is richer and riper than many Santorini whites, but its acidity and piercing minerality are pronounced enough to tame the wine's fullness. The grapes come from vines in the villages of Pyrgos, Emporio and Messaria-Vothonas. The soils are volcanic. Unoaked. A wine you can age for a good 5 years or more.

Staff Pick Notes

When I first tasted this wine, I noticed that I liked it... I like it a lot. Then I began to think about what I would want to eat with it... Then I began to think about what I wouldn't want to eat with it. This wine honestly has a little bit of everything and will pair well with everything on the table as well as by itself.

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.
