Kir Yianni Mountain Assyrtiko, Macedonia, Greece

Regular price £12.99

Crisp minerality and great structure - a match for pricier Chablis

An Assyrtiko wine with an intense character produced from young vines growing on the mountainous vineyards of Amyndeon

What started in 1997 as a fresh expression of Greek wine is now one of the most progressive wineries in the country. Research and development programmes dedicated to unlocking the potential of Xinomavro, the local grape variety, are given the kind of focus Catena have done with Malbec

Tasting Note: Pale straw, lovely mineral and lanolin sweetness on nose. Rich, complex mouth, minerals, stone fruit. Good length - really lovely stuff. Chablis-like.
