Tasting Notes

A Greek white wine from Santorini. This blend of Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Aidani is deliciously fragrant and full of exotic fruits and fresh florals, with lithe minerals on the end. Fruit-forward and fresh, this is an ideal match for white meats or seafood.

Staff Pick Notes

I tasted this wine as part of a larger oyster and wine pairing and had no expectations. It wound up being the biggest surprise of the night. Pretty aromatics, zippy acidity, and a nice saline quality make it a perfect foil for bivalves, rich white meats, and salads. It has a gorgeous, crystalline hue that I appreciated while taking in its floral aromas and peach and lime zest flavors. A cross between Chablis and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, perhaps? It doesn't offer exceptional complexity, but it's immediate, refreshing, and shows well for the price. Like so many Greek wines, a terrific value.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Athiri

A Greek white grape with a lemony character, often blended with other grapes such as the Assyrtiko.

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.
