Vriniotis Assyrtiko Sur Lies, PGI Evia, Greece 2019

Regular price £21.49

Complex, saline and mineral driven Assyrtiko of real character

The Vrinioti family winery, located on the island of Evia, was established in 2002. But, the relationship with wine goes back to when Konstantinos Vriniotis's ancestors started planting vines in the area and built an old traditional stone winery. The 45 hectare estate is farmed organically and planted with Syrah and the Greek red Vradiano and white grapes Assyrtiko and Malagouzia.

Tasting Note: Intense, vivid aromas of exotic fruit, pineapple and lychee. It unfolds elegantly in the mouth with a sharp and cooling acidity that provides vitality, aroma abundance and an extended after-taste.
