Santorini Wines are unique and make my heart beat faster. Literally.
It’s the vines themselves – I am completely in love with these basket- shaped grapevines, trained in this spectacular way to protect the fruit from the powerful winds and the fierce heat, grown in the island’s volcanic soils!
Assyrtiko is the absolute star of Santorini and this natural ferment by Gavalas Winery is simply staggering.
The clarity of the grape is expressed in a uniquely crisp, lemony character with delicious pear notes and hints of jasmine.
The mouthfeel surprises you – the natural yeast fermentation brings an almost oily sensation with a distinct minerality! A hint of saltiness, too.
You close your eyes and you think you’re standing at the caldera, the wind is blowing through your hair. You might even smell the iodine from the deep blue sea. This is Greek summer in a glass!
