The Assyrtiko 2020 from Tselepos estate has a pale yellow colour.

On the nose it’s fresh, mineral and sapid. Citrus notes meet wet stone, nettle and fig leaf.

The finish is medium long.

Assyrtiko is a Greek white wine grape, probably the best known variety indigenous to this country. This grape is native to the island of Santorini. Here the soil is arid and volcanic which contributes to Assyrtiko distinctive mineral character.

While Assyrtiko is originally from Santorini, it is now grown all over Greece, from the northern area of Macedonia (Makedonia) to the Attica (Attika) region. Cuttings of Assyrtiko have also made it to the New World and Assyrtiko wine is now produced in Australia and the United States too!
