Other Info:
This modern estate in Santorini can boast one of the most experienced winemaking teams on the island, with stints at places such as Michel Chapoutier in France, T-Oinos Estate on the Greek island of Tinos, as well as at Sigalas and Hatzidakis on Santorini itself.

Representing the younger generation of winemaking of Vassaltis, Yannis brought the passion and energy to drive quality to the level of fine white Burgundies and Rhones that dominate the world stage. Working with his friend and now colleague Elias Roussakis, the two extremely experienced oenologist work with the aegean eco system, using indigenous grape varieties, utilising unique viticultural practices that have been a tradition in Santorini for centuries.

White peach, lime, lemon, a stony character and gentle spice on the classic nose. Really minerally on the palate, it`s tight and fresh yet really expressive. Grapefruit leading to riper citrus and hints of tropical fruit on the palate, good limey acidity and a really minerally finish, really stony. Clean, full-flavoured and expressive.

Press:
'This fragrant white may look pricey but on the recommendation of many in the wine business we gave it a go and found it to be worth every penny. Wonderfully complex with notes of sun-baked dried fruit, alongside fresh minerality and vibrant citrus, this would be a treat with lobster or crab in creamy sauces. Another winner from Santorini-grown assyrtiko grapes.' Stacey Smith, The Independent
