Greek Wine Cellars Assyrtiko

Dry White

Assyritko is unique to the Mediterranean in that it achieves ripeness while maintaining high acidity.  The wine is light in color with greenish tints.  On the palate a fresh fruitiness is apparent with the development of a pleasant acidity and minerality, the latter derived from the unique character of the geology.

Varietals:

Assyrtiko

Wine Region:

Santorini, Greece

Food Pairings:

Fish and seafood; salads; white meats; and traditional Mediterranean vegetarian casseroles. Best served chilled 8°-12°C (46°-50° F).

"This offers lush yet focused flavors of grapefruit, ripe melon and green peach that are well-structured and full of rich spicy notes. A mix of chamomile and cream details emerges on the suave finish."
