Vassaltis Santorini Assyrtiko

£29.95

Dreaming of that heat and seaside air? There are few island experiences as dreamy as Santorini which arguably makes the best Greek whites. Vassaltis is in our eyes the best producer on the island, making incredibly complex, delicious and saline wines that transport you back to sitting on that oceanside Oia terrace. There is no oak in this wine to preserve the fruit and freshness without alteration. These wines for us, are alike and akin to top-notch Chablis with their huge, stony minerality.

The wine is light in the glass, with intense aromas of citrus fruits, a tinge of saltiness and with a clean, focused minerality. In the mouth, despite Assyrtiko often making thin and lighter wines, Vassaltis versions have a rich, layered texture with flavours of white peach, stone fruits, sweet lime, lemon, wet stone and a touch of spices. An amazingly hemmed minerality carries the saline finish to want you pouring another glass. Amazingly food-friendly, our pick is some feta, barbecued aubergine, or fresh seafood.
