Drink it now or cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant.

Located on the northern tip of Santorini, just under a kilometer from the sea, the Domaine Sigalas is one of the most iconic wineries in the whole country.

This wine is made from the indigenous Assyrtiko grape, grown in a single plot called Kavalieros, located in the village of Imerovigli. The climatic conditions of Santorini, particularly dry and characterized by the violent gusts of the Meltemi, have led, since ancient times, to cultivate the vine on the ground, in small holes, wrapping the shoots on themselves to form a sort of circular basket.

The long shoots of the vines - which are about 60 years old - are rolled up on the ground, to protect the bunches from the sun's rays and winds that typically shake the island. The soil is volcanic, rich in magnesium and iron, with small percentages also of pumice stone. The must ferments in steel tanks, and then refines for 18 months again in steel.

The Domaine Sigalas Kavalieros shows a beautiful and bright straw yellow color. The impact on the nose is generous and intense with touches of exotic fruit mixed with some island aromatic herbs and a mineral background. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied and round, with a concentration and freshness. Try it with grilled fish or pasta with clams.
