The best known Assyrtikos are found on the volcanic island of Santorini, but this wine from Papagiannakos comes froma coastal location on the Attican peninsula that infuses the wine with the same salinity and racing acidity due to its proximity to the sea. Produced from 100% Assyrtiko grapes. The vines are grown on unirrigated limestone soil at around 100m altitude, in north-east Attiki.
Fresh floral aromas of citrus, white blossom, wild orange and lime. Further citrus characters on the textured, mineral palate with a refreshing saline acidity. A zesty, crisp and charcterful white with potential to age. In a 2017 Decanter Assyrtiko tasting it came in the top 4 wines (the other 3 being from Santorini).
