Vassaltis, Assyrtiko, Santorini, Greece

Regular price £32.99

Superior mineral rich white from Santorini, a serious rival to Chablis

The picturesque island of Santorini has, over the years, built itself a reputation for being a very strong producer of wines indeed. Amongst this booming wine culture, a brand new project between friends was born when Yannis Valambous returned to Santorini, to revive his family vineyards. This modern estate in Santorini can boast one of the most experienced winemaking teams on the island, with stints at places such as Michel Chapoutier in France, T-Oinos Estate on the Greek island of Tinos, as well as at Sigalas and Hatzidakis on Santorini itself.

Tasting Note: An aromatic wine with aromas of fresh citrus and grapefruit, giving way to a gorgeously dry, mineral, yet succulent and moreish palate.

Critics: Jancis Robinson 17/20 (2016), Decanter 95/100 and one of 50 'Most Exciting Wines of 2018'
