Santorini is the first wine ever produced by Vas- saltis. Made from 100% Assyrtiko this is the most well known wine of the winery. Produced by both whole bunch and destemmed grapes, the wine ferments in steel tanks where it remains with its lees for 7 months prior to its bottling and release to the market
An exceptionally complete wine with a great ageing potential, shows the true essence of what Santorini and Assyrtiko are about: Aromatics of basalt and pumice stone with ripe tropical fruits, honeysuckle and maritime salinity, and a palate of salty green fruits with high levels of minerality and acidity. The long aftertaste adds depth and weight to the wine making it a perfect pairing for seafood and fish.
