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

The joint venture between Yiannis Tselepos and the Chrissou family of Santorini is one of the most exciting projects in Greece. The old Chrissou family vineyards were revived in 2013 and today produce wines of exceptional quality from indigenous varieties, with yields of around 3-3.5 tons per hectare.

The Assyrtiko grapes are sourced from 50 to 100 years old vines planted in the areas of Pyrgos, Emporio and Megalochori on typical Santorini’s sandy volcanic soils, rich in pumice stone and ash. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature with selected yeasts and the wine is then left to age on the lees for about 3 months.

This delicious white wine is a true expression of the Assyrtiko grape and the volcanic soil of the island of Santorini. A well structured and terroir-driven Assyrtiko, reminiscent of the warm sun and blue sea of Greece. The color is a bright straw yellow. The nose reveals aromas of citrus and flint with some iodized notes. In the mouth it is solid and balanced, intense and elegant, with fruity flavors that show excellent persistence. The acidity is perfectly integrated. The minerality is intense, and there is a touch of salinity that lingers in the mouth for a long time. Pair it with oysters, sea carpaccio and vegetable and goat cheese tarts.
