The white assyrtiko from the A-Grafo series by Kontozisis Organic Vineyards is one of the cleanest and best expressions of this beautiful Greek grape.

Grown entirely organically, with no irrigation or fertilizers, the grapes get their crisp minerality from the mainland terroir. The single vineyard that produces the assyrtiko grapes, is located at an altitude of 300 meters, and its outline can be seen on the label.

The grapes are harvested by hand and the whole bunches are subject to spontaneous fermentation for 25 days, with 40 hours of full skin contact, followed by 6 months on its own lees in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled with no filtering or clarification. The skin contact places this wine somewhere between a white and a light orange wine.

A-Grafo Assyrtiko is a crisp floral white. The Kontozisis team have succeeded in making an Assyrtiko that is more floral and citrusy, than the usual expression of the grape, yet still keeping true to the oiliness and acidity that is the signature of the varietal.
