Fresh and intense Assyrtiko that will improve with age - a brilliant Santorini
Artemis Karamolegos Winery combines a great respect for Santorini’s winemaking traditions with a modern outlook and constant investment in their vineyards and in wine making equipment. This makes it of the most dynamic and fastest-growing wineries in Santorini. It has already won many prestigious awards in both domestic and international competitions.
The Assyrtiko is produced from selected plots of very old vines mainly grown in altitude. It is the characteristic salty, mineral and complex expression of Santorini's soul. The strictly selected grapes and our minimalistic winemaking approach gives a wine of great depth, richness and ageing potential.
Tasting Note: Elegant nose dominated by the aromas of fruits (stone fruits, citrus fruits) and stony minerality (wet sea rocks). Notes of flowers like jasmine and herbal like mint derived from the percentage of Athiri-Aidani giving in this way many layers of flavor. Complex, elegant and vivid on the palate with depth of fruit, freshness and density.
