Collection: Assyrtiko

Originally from the island of Santorini, the Assyrtiko grape is now found all over Greece and is now used to make some of the highest quality white, sweet and light orange wines the country has to offer. It does well in hot climates with little rain, while still keeping its high acidity and mineral crispness intact.

The classic PDO Assyrtikos of Santorini, often classed as some of the best whites on the world stage, emphasises the concentrated mineral structure of the grape, while wines from other regions often have more fruit both on nose and palate. Assyrtiko wines are great candidates for ageing, especially those with barrel ageing, but all store well up to 10 years or more, developing ripe fruit, honey and intensifying the mineral expressions.
