Winemaking

Assyrtiko is the most promising and versatile white grape variety of Greece. The vineyard lies at an altitude of 700 meters within the viticultural zone of Amyndeon/Florina in mountainous Northwestern Greece. The vineyard’s mean yield does not exceed 40 hl/ha. The soil is sandy and poor. The microclimate of the region is characterised by cold winters and warm summers, while the four neighbouring lakes contribute to the creation of a mild continental climate. Assyrtiko is produced from 8-10 years-old vines.

The grapes are chilled overnight and cold soaked in order to maximize the extraction of aroma precursors into the must. Following racking, the must is inoculated with selected yeasts. At the end of the fermentation, the wine matures for a period of 4-5 months on its lees, gaining more volume and complexity.

Food Recommendation

Assyrtiko is a wine ideal for food pairings: roasted or poached fish fillet, fried cod, oven-roasted stuffed squid, pasta in white sauce, white cheeses.

Customer Reviews

  • Beautiful 'sur lie' style

    This is a gorgeous, fresh wine with lemony up-front appeal and subtle hints of peach, with an underlying stony 'grip'. It is brisk and fresh without being austere. If you enjoy Albarino, Godello, Muscadet 'Sur Lie' and the like, you are sure to enjoy this. It's also great value for money. Wonderful!
