Tasting Notes

A delicious Assyrtiko from the island of Santorini where the vines are coiled in basket shapes to protect the fruit from the fierce winds. The volcanic soil and use of indigenous yeasts have made for a mineral-driven wine with great body and complex citrus and saline flavors. Great match for baked trout and salmon.

Staff Pick Notes

Crisp, clean, aromatic and refreshing. These are a few words to describe the Assyrtiko and potentially the place of origin. The calderic archipelago of Santorini is a place steeped in history and the growing of vines. Not to mention a tourist destination world renowned. The Karamolegos family has been successfully making wines here for a few generations.

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.
