Tasting Notes

Situated in the small picturesque village of Imerovigli, the Kavalieros vineyard overlooks the dramatic Santorini caldera from one of the highest altitudes on the island. The first winery to produce a single vineyard Assyrtiko, Sigalas ages this wine in tank intensely stirring the lees over an impressively long 18-month period. The result is a concentrated, complex and powerful Assyrtiko.

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.
