2020 Stamnaki Assyrtiko

GREECE | Assyrtiko
"Assyrtiko is the “queen” of Greek grapes, and is indigenous to the island of Santorini. Santorini hosts many ancient Greek varieties, and has been called the “Jurassic park” of Greek grapes. The Assyrtiko variety has perfectly adapted to the arid and windy conditions of the volcanic Santorini island, and maintains an impressively steely minerality, despite the hot and dry Mediterranean microclimate. This wine is juicier and fruitier than a typical Assyrtiko, with its signature acidity backbone refreshing the palate." - Producer Notes
