Akrathos Assyrtiko 2019
Assyrtiko, Greece’s most important white grape varietal, performs exceptionally well in the Akrathos Chalkidiki vineyards. The combination of altitude, proximity to the sea, strict organic viticultural practices, low yields and the precision winemaking results in an outstanding Assyrtiko with crisp minerality. This wine was made from free-run juice which was fermented with wild and cultivated yeasts at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it spent two to four weeks on the fine lees. Maturation in stainless steel retained the freshness and Assyrtiko expression of this special terroir. A crisp and uplifting Assyrtiko, with complex notes of lime, citrus blossom and peach, highlighted by mineral overtones. Generously textured, with lovely balance and a long, lemony finish.
